Dark Skies Events at Bosavern Community Farm

Meeting at Bosavern Community Farm at dusk, Nick will lead a walk around the farm, discussing and discovering nocturnal wildlife inhabiting the space. A moth lamp will be placed out for observations and moth identification throughout the evening.

We also invite people to return the following morning with Nick to further identify extra moths found in traps left out overnight. This morning follow-up session is ideal for people with small children who may need to leave earlier on the Friday evening.

Warm drinks will be available in the evening session. Please wrap up warm with layers and a hat, wear suitable footwear (wellies/ walking boots) and bring waterproofs.

The event is free of charge due to funding made available by St Just Town Council.

All under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

There will be a second opportunity to experience this Dark Skies event on Friday 12th July evening 8pm-midnight with a follow up on Saturday 13th July 9am-10am.
