Go on a Dark Sky Adventure at How Hill

A magical astronomical adventure awaits you under the dark skies of How Hill on Saturday 30 March.

Experience the night-time world at How Hill National Nature Reserve by going on an adventure with nocturnal creatures, tricks of light and sensory discovery – all rounded off with a touch of night magic! The adventure is suitable for children aged seven and over, accompanied by an adult.

This popular event will be hosted at How Hill, in one of the darkest areas in the Broads National Park, providing the perfect setting for an unadulterated view of the stars.

Jon Tyler of Wild for Woods will be leading the event. Jon is an experienced forager and bushcraft practitioner with a great enthusiasm for wildlife, wild food and outdoor living. His interest began at an early age, munching blackberries and sorrel leaves from the hedge at the bottom of his garden. More recently he has worked on community, education and conservation projects in urban and rural locations, and now runs outdoor wildlife activities and courses across East Anglia.

Nick Sanderson, Education Officer for the Broads Authority, said of the event:

“We’re so excited to be able to invite the public to join in with our dark skies adventure at How Hill. It’s going to be amazing fun for all of the family and a great way to engage with the natural environment at night in all of its starry nocturnal glory.”

The event at How Hill runs from 7.00pm to 9.00pm and costs £6 per adult, £5 per under 16s and £18 family (2 adult 2 children). The party should meet in the main public car park at How Hill.
