About the event

Join us on a wild night out for all the family! 

When the sun goes down, creatures of the night appear! Venture into the dark with our experts to discover what really lives in the woods around autumn time.

Come and discover the nocturnal mammals, invertebrates and amphibians of Nower Wood. We will learn how to set (humane) small mammal traps, we will use our torches to search the pond for amphibians, check the moth trap for visitors as well as use bat detectors to listen out for their ultrasonic calls.

Don't forget to wrap up warm and bring a torch! All children must be accompanied by an adult, suitable for children aged 7 and above. Free parking is available on site, and when you arrive walk up the steps through the arch where you will find the centre.
