Dorset Wildlife Trust gets even wilder this June with Wild About Blandford. The free family event is a chance for everyone to celebrate local wildlife this summer. With activities including wildlife safaris, live music, underwater river cameras and quizzes, there will be something for all the family.
What is happening on the day?
Joy Wallis, Community Conservation Officer of Dorset Wildlife Trust, said: “This is going to be a wonderful day and a great chance to find out more about the wildlife local to you. We also have the Dorset Dragonfly, Otter and Bat groups joining us on the day, so it is a great chance to ask all those wildlife questions you have. Children will be kept entertained with mask and jewellery making, wildlife safaris and a chance to come face to face with some of the local wildlife. Come and join us and bring the whole family!”
How can I get involved?
Dorset Wildlife Trust will be joined by many local environmental and conservation groups for the day and people will also be able to sign up for walks and activities for the upcoming DT11 Green Week from 3 rd to 9th July.
Wild about Blandford is on 25th June from 10.30am to 3.00pm at the The Marsh and Ham in Blandford Forum, between the River Stour and Morrisons’ car park. Refreshments will be available on site.
