Discover the captivating natural phenomenon of biofluorescence on a guided walk around Dunollie Wood with David from Reveal Nature.

Biofluorescence is a unique phenomenon where certain organisms emit light in different colours to those they absorb. Using UV torches, we'll venture into the darkness to witness a stunning and diverse display of biofluorescent organisms - from fungi to insects to plants - in their natural habitat, and observe nature's secret spectacles.

Don't miss your chance to delve into this enchanting world and uncover the wonders that await in the darkness!
