Old John Tower after dark

Join the ranger team and volunteers to learn about wildlife you won’t see in the daylight!

You will meet rescued Hedgehogs and Owls and discover how you can help them.

Then take a dusk stroll through the Park, armed with bat detecting devices and learn how to identify the different species. We will also be keeping ears open to hear calls of the different owls who reside here. Finally, as night falls, we will be visiting our moth traps to see what we have caught. Please bring a torch.
