If you have tickets for Nibley Festival, come and join us in the Orchard field's "Apple Tent", on Saturday 2nd July, where we will be holding a family friendly moth identification and release event between 9am and 11am. This will be followed at 1.30pm - 2.30pm by your chance to try out a carbon calculator to see what you can do to reduce your carbon emissions along with a hands-on demonstration of how we engage in 'Riverfly monitoring'; checking out the health of our local waterways.
