Connect with nature

Join us each month for seasonal activities in your local park. From mindfulness and crafts, to nature discovery and play – there’s something for everyone.

Discover moths this July

This month join us to celebrate National Moth Week at our ‘Back to Nature’ activities. Come along to these morning sessions where we’ll be checking out the moths which have visited the park over night, and learning about these incredible insects.

Watch our wildlife cameras

The heron chicks at Hengistbury Head are almost fully grown – it’s been wonderful watching them develop!

They hatched at the end of May, so we should soon see them start to take their first short flights between branches and nearby trees.
