Thursday

8th Oct 2020

6:20pm - 7:30pm

Night Ramble

Are you up for a nocturnal adventure?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Explore the bush at night with a spotlighting tour with zoologist Sarah Way from Ways To Nature!

 

Learn about the jarrah forest’s fascinating nocturnal wildlife as we take a walk around the bush trails of Dwellingup’s Forest Discovery Centre and Jarrah Forest Lodge. Search for the animals creating the curious hoots, croaks, rustlings and eye-shines observed in the bush after sunset.

 

A special spotlight will be operated by your guide Sarah. A small number of torches will be available on the night to help you see along the trails. You are welcome to bring your own small torch if you have one (no spotlights, please).

 

Best suited for children 6 years and above.

Please arrive at 6.20pm and meet inside the Forest Discovery Centre for a 6.30pm departure.

 

While every effort is made to locate and observe nocturnal animals, the Forest Discovery Centre is a natural bush environment, not a sanctuary or zoo. The animals are wild and therefore sightings of wildlife cannot be guaranteed. But searching is half the fun!
