Join Bath Natural History Society specialists to explore the diverse wildlife of Odd Down and The Tumps.  You’ll be guided around a circular walk through the woodland and out into the grassy areas bordering the playing fields, taking our time to examine all kinds of plant life from tiny mosses and liverworts to large trees, along with all creatures, great and small, that make themselves at home within their cover.

You’ll be amazed how much to find there is in this green space, in the middle of a residential area, if you know how to look, where to look and what to look for – and why. We don’t need to travel far from home to appreciate and learn from nature’s variety in a way that can enrich and deepen our human life experience.
