Come and join the hunt for bats and moths and mini beasts in Coronation Park
Bring a torch and join West Lancashire Borough Council Rangers looking for bats and moths on the Creepy Crawly Walk in Coronation Park, Ormskirk, on Saturday 20 September.
Accompanied by a local moth expert who will be talking for a short while on common moth species you are likely to see and how to garden for wildlife, the Rangers will be taking a closer look at the many mini beasts and moths that live in the park.
A bat expert will also be there on the night to give a talk and take people to look for the animals in the park.
The fun starts at 6pm and people wanting to take part should meet the Ranger at the bowling pavilion in the park.
Councillor David Sudworth, portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “Our evening walks looking for bats, moths and other animals are always very enjoyable, so come along and have a great evening in the park.”
Visitors should wear suitable clothing and footwear for the weather and ground conditions. All children under 16 require adult supervision. For more information on West Lancashire Borough Council leisure events please visit www.westlancs.gov.uk/events.
