We're Going on a Bug Hunt Free


Bug hunting

Become a bug hunter this summer and see if you can discover Newtown's beautiful butterflies and hidden world of creepy crawlies. We've got magnifying glasses and ID sheets to borrow, and plenty of bugs to hunt for. See if you can find the butterflies and moths that make their homes here in the long grass and bushy hedgerows. And you'll be ticking off two of your 50 things activities too: hunt for bugs and hold a scary beast.

Suitable for the whole family but especially explorers aged 5-12

Dogs on leads are welcome

Meet at the visitor point, which is next to the car park, any time between 11am and 1pm.
