Lovely to hear that you have an interest and if you're not careful you'll get hooked like nut and myself!!
I belong to a local wildlife group and this summer we ran moth trapping sessions in my garden. We basically set up four traps around the garden and then the next morning we invited interested members to come around and help identify them! This was extremely good fun and I think everyone learnt a lot as we all got the chance to see lots of moths close up and have a really detailed look at them! We were also lucky to have a local mot expert with us and he could ID the more difficult ones for us and tell everyone some of the history behind local moth populations etc!
My wife also put on a cream tea so it was a thoroughly enjoyable morning! One of the best things though was the absolute fascination my 6yr old daughter had for the moths and speaking with everyone else about them. She certainly learnt lots and with the added job of chief moth releaser she loved it!
I'm not sure how old your daughter is but if you can find someone to do some trapping or try a little yourself you will both learn heaps!
Maybe you have a local wildlife group near to you who already do this type of thing or would be interested in trying it in your garden?...
Just a thought?
