Is there a cost to join the group? No, but donations to Pensychnant Conservation Centre are appreciated.
How is information fed back to members? It is not an official group. It is just one part of the Pensychnant Conservation Centre’s activities. Moth events are publicised on Pensychnants programme and website.
Is there an active field events programme and are non-members welcome to attend these events? Informal meetings at 8pm on the first Monday of every month: just an informal chat over a cuppa, with recently caught live specimens.
Occasional moth-trapping evenings at Pensychnant and other local nature reserves.
Annual weekend trapping event for the North Wales specialities, Ashworth’s Rustic and Weaver’s Wave.
