93 days to go to National Insect Week

Pollinators & Pond Creatures at Belwade Farm

Saturday, June 18, 2016 - 10:00 to 12:30

Event organised by Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Service & World Horse Welfare in partnership with Butterfly Conservation & NE Scotland Biodiversity Partnership ‘Pooling our Ponds’ project.

Discover some smaller residents of Belwade Farm as we first open light traps set overnight to catch moths before releasing them - find out how you can help these fascinating insects and others that pollinate plants. We then plan to investigate what amazing animals may be lurking in the nearby pond! Under 16’s must be accompanied. Bring outdoor clothing suited to weather + wellies for pond dipping.

Meet at World Horse Welfare Belwade Farm Visitor Centre, near Aboyne

Please book with Lisa Gardiner at World Horse Welfare via phone or email.
