Gosforth Park Nature Reserve Exploration Days

Saturday 24 August, 10.30am-3.30pm

Come and enjoy this fantastic private nature reserve at our annual exploration day. Everyone is welcome, drop in anytime between 10.30am and 3.30pm to learn about birds, plants, mammals and insects from friendly local naturalists. Activities this year will include pond-dipping, birdwatching, moth trapping and mammal monitoring, while our popular tree trail and insect Bioblitz will also be making a triumphant return.

Gosforth Park Nature Reserve is the jewel in the crown of Newcastle’s remaining green space sites and is home to a range of rare and elusive species. On a typical visit there is the potential to encounter bittern, roe deer, kingfisher, red fox, red squirrel, willow tit and more.

Sorry, dogs are not allowed on the reserve, even on leads, to avoid disturbing wildlife. Paths can get muddy if it rains so please wear suitable footwear.
