Big Wild Sleepout

About

Arrive and set up from 5.0 pm – pack camp by approx 10 am on Sunday 14 July.
Come for a night camping under the stars and connect with nature as the nocturnal wildlife comes to life on the reserve. Join in with twilight walks, see what bats are on the wing and check the traps in the morning to see the spectacular moths that may be resting inside.
Search the night skies with the help of the Sandy Astronomical Society and warm up around the fire with marshmallows. Finally, go off to sleep, perhaps to the sound of tawny owls hooting, or foxes and deer barking around you!
