Midnight Critters Halloween Trail

Saturday 26 October to Sunday 3 November

9.30am - 4.30pm

Price: £3 per child (£2.40 for RSPB members)

Discover the animals that emerge after dark at our Midnight Critters themed Halloween trail!

In the run up to Halloween, some of the spookier animals of RSPB Coombes Valley have been running, crawling, flying, and slithering through the woods, keen to show any brave visitors how special nocturnal species can be! Go on a journey round the paths, seeking out the clues on the self-guided trail, and learn the secrets of the midnight critters during the day!

During the October half-term, our visitor centre will be transformed into the spooky animals headquarters, where visitors begin their mystery adventure. As well as the main clues, there will be a series of wildlife-themed, Halloween mini-activities that will actively “connect children to nature”. Some of these will be under cover including inside our Mongolian yurt, transformed into a Halloween den with craft activities.

The trail ends back at the visitor centre, where all that exploring will be rewarded with a Halloween chocolate treat or gift. There’s no need to worry if you get a bit stuck, friendly RSPB staff and volunteers will be on site to lend a hand.

Car parking is an additional £4 per vehicle but parking is free for RSPB members. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No dogs allowed on the reserve.
