Creatures of the Night

Fri 28 April 2023

A dusk to dark tour of the Heritage Park, led by nature experts from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

Starting at Charterhouse and armed with moth traps, bat detectors and the i-Naturalist app, venture on a monitoring walk around the park and river and see what wildlife there is to be found. 

We will meet outside Charterhouse for set up, and then walk into the wider Heritage Park for the 2hr tour.
