Creatures of the Night
Safari at Boug’s Meadow
Friday 1st September at 7:45 pm
Come along for an evening of fun, looking and listening for some of the beautiful night-flyers and creatures that visit this lovely wildlife oasis slap bang in the heart of Great Missenden.
Meet at 7.45pm on Friday 1st September in Boug's Meadow next to the Link Rd car park in Great Missenden.
Bring a torch, wear some stout shoes or wellies, insect repellant to fend off those pesky midges, and a jumper or jacket to keep you warm once the sun goes down.
This is a FREE, fun, family friendly event and we look forward to meeting you all on the night. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
