About the event

Take a walk around our unique reserve to see what the beavers have been building including their dams and the first lodge in Cornwall in over 400 years!

Join us for a guided walk around the reserve and then relax in this tranquil place at dusk to hopefully see and hear the beavers in action.

During the 2-3 hour visit, we’ll show you how busy the beavers have been and teach you about their fantastic way of life as ecosystem engineers! The walks will take place at dusk to ensure that you get the best opportunity to see the beavers. The animals are becoming more secretive so a sighting isn’t guaranteed.

Meet at: Woodland Valley Farm, Ladock near Truro, Cornwall.
