16th August 2017 : 8.30-9.30pm
Who lives in the park at night?!
Join us for a guided walk around the inner and outer park area as night closes in and find out which animals are out and about from dusk onwards. Mini torches provided. Suitable for ages 8 and over.
The park will be open for people to look around from 8-10pm but please arrive promptly at 8.30pm for the guided activity. We will be looking for spiders, birds, mice and foxes and using bat detectors – we can’t guarantee to see all these animals – it is up to them! Insect light traps and moth traps will be set up in the park.
NB This event is WEATHER DEPENDENT – in heavy or continual rain, we can’t use light traps and bats will not be active. Rig 0208 293 1904 just before the event or check our Facebook and Twitter pages.
No booking necessary.
Dress appropriately for the weather with suitable footwear.
