Details

Grab this fantastic opportunity to spend a night on a nature reserve! We'll bring the wildlife and lots of amazing adventures, you just need your tent and a bit of food!

We'll start early on Saturday evening, pitching our tents, and give everyone a chance to eat dinner. There'll be lots of wildlife challenges for you to try, and as it goes dark we will visit a moth trap in action, go on a late evening bat wander with bat detectors, and meet the astronomers so that you can look through their incredible telescopes. Before bed we'll break open the marshmallows to toast on the campfire. Who knows what wildlife we'll discover on the reserve?

After your night under canvas, we'll head off for an early morning bird walk and see what moths were caught overnight as we release them. After breakfast we will see how you did in the wildlife challenges that we set! Then it will be time to break camp and pack up after your night of wildlife adventure.

A great cooked breakfast can be purchased in the Coffee Shop on the Sunday morning.
