Badger Watch

About Badger Watch

Join the rangers as we go on the lookout for one of our most recognisable mammals. Badgers are our largest carnivorous mammal but being nocturnal are rarely seen. We will go in search of these elusive members of the weasel family at dusk as they emerge from their setts in search of food.

All events are free and require booking in advance. Children are welcome at all events and anyone under 16 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Remember, the weather can be very changeable and we ask you to dress accordingly.
