Supporting both Owls & Evening Tourism - Perfect Match

29th April 2018

Owls & Local Evening Tourism
The perfect match

Evening Owl Experiences

The Barn Owl Centre is connecting further with local communities, as well as Gloucester City and County tourism, by adding Evening Owl Experiences to the list of events that we hold here at Netheridge Farm.  Operating on a daily basis (during Spring, Summer and Autumn) between 7pm and 9pm, this pre booked experience is for all ages.  A magical opportunity that will allow visitors to experience the Owls at the very best time of day, in amongst the fabulous wildlife environment we have here on the farm.  What better way to relax and enjoy a memorable experience with these magnificent Owls.

All guests that book the experience will discover and learn about the Owls, hearing about the importance of their welfare and conservation, plus much more.  A truly interactive activity, guests will have the birds flying to their gloved hand and depending on timings with our training schedule, some guests may be involved with the training of our less experienced Owls at the Sanctuary. Should the weather not be in our favour, we have a large seated indoor flying area.

If you would like to book or require further information, please call us on 01452 383999 between 9am and 9pm.  All funds raised from all our experiences directly support the Owls and important work of our Charity.
