Celebrate nature with the Big Wild Weekend in Dorset
Tuesday 12th June 2018
Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) is taking part in the first ever Big Wild Weekend on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June, which is part of the Wildlife Trusts’ nationwide 30 Days Wild initiative.
The 30 Days Wild challenge invites everyone to do something wild every day in June – whether that’s going for a wild walk, feeding the birds in the garden, or watching wildlife in action.
To celebrate wildlife in Dorset and inspire local people to get out and explore what nature is on their doorstep, DWT has lined up a series of nature-themed events to help create some great wildlife encounters and experiences for every member of the family.
DWT Communications Officer, Sally Welbourn said, “The Big Wild Weekend events are a chance for members of the public to push the pause button on their busy lives and have fun in some of DWT’s most stunning nature reserves and visitor centres. Activities are suitable for all the family, even if you only have a couple of hours to spare.”

- Big Wild Seas Weekend, Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th. Various activities over the weekend.
