National Insect Week returns in 2020

Insect Safari at Longrun Meadow

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 14:00 to 15:30

For National Insect Week we’ll be having a tiny sized safari!

Come along to have a go at catching and identifying some of the amazing creepy crawlies that live here (even the ones that aren’t insects).

Meet at the willow cathedral at 2pm.

We recommend wearing long trousers to protect against nettles and thistles.

Age limits or guidance

Suitable for all

Cost details

Free to all


The area is flat but many paths are rough and stony.

Did you know?


Some moths evade bat echolocation by falling fast, ‘shouting’ back, sound warnings of poison and mimicking each other.
