Wildlife & Nature Event

Wildlife & Nature Event


Come and discover our natural residents and alternative visitors – the ones that live with us and around us, but are rarely seen!

Join an evening tour of Tretower Court and be part of our bat investigation team, with the help of wildlife officers and bat detection equipment. What species are here? What do they eat? Where do they go during the day?

The Vincent Wildlife Trust works to protect wildlife and help people learn about the species with which we share our gardens, woodlands and ancient monuments. Wildlife Officers will give a brief introduction to the work of the trust and the types of wildlife that may be encountered, whilst the custodian will explain the history of the site over the last 900 years.

Please wear suitable clothing and sturdy footwear, and a small torch is also advisable.
Price £4 for adults, £2 for under-16s.
To book, please telephone 01874 730279.
