After some 9 months of planning the big weekend has arrived!!

We have a great weekend of nature related activities ranging from talks and walks to bugs and bats, both for adults and children.

The weekend begins on Friday 16th May begins at 7.30pm with BBC Radio 4’s “Shared Planet” presenter Kelvin Boot talking about “The trials and travails of a naturalist”. We also have a range of events where experts talk about their passion, including talks about butterflies & moths, birds, bees, mammals, rivers and bats.

On Saturday we have a really special guest – Miranda Krestovnikoff from the BBC Series Coast and also President of RSPB.

Over the Saturday and Sunday there will be a variety of walks for you to enjoy. There’s a dawn chorus walk at 4.15am on Sunday if you’re an early bird! There’s also wild flower, butterfly, river and bat walks.

There will be lots of children’s activities such as a bouncy castle, face painting, a clay corner, snail racing, trails, quizzes as well as a Forest School.
