Learning for adults

At the Wyre Forest Discovery Centre we are offering 4 guided walks over the summer 2016.


Friday 25th June OR Friday 1st July 2016

Experience the forest as the light fades, listening for birds as they settle down for the night, and maybe owls calling. We will use detectors to hear bats as they hunt for insects.  As night falls, let your eyes adjust to seeing in the dark and your other senses sharpen, as the animals do. There might be a possibility of seeing glow-worms, once it becomes truly dark!

We will car-share to drive into the middle of the forest to start the walk which will last approximately 2 hours. Wear warm clothes & bring a torch. No dogs please.

8.45pm to 11pm. Booking essential. £5 per person.


Wednesday 13th July OR Wednesday 10th August

A general interest walk explaining the Forestry Commission's management of Wyre Forest. It will follow a circular route of 2 to 3 miles along good paths and forest tracks. There will be opportunities to observe and learn about the wildlife of Wyre Forest, and consider its current and future management. Whilst the walks will be aimed at adults, accompanying older children are very welcome. Sorry, no dogs please.

Booking essential. £4 per person.

For further details please contact  or phone 0300 067 4855.
