Events

Most of our events are free, though donations are always welcome to help fund our work. Every penny you donate supports conservation.

However, because our indoor talks involve hall hire and speaker costs, for these we charge non-members £3 each and members £2 each, but entrance is free to under-16s.

One thought on “Events”

  1. We just wanted to say thank you for a great afternoon yesterday.

    This is the first safari we have been able to come to and we had fantastic time.

    I just managed to arrive in time for the start after an early shift and I was amazed at the size of the crowd waiting to go in!

    Our two boys thoroughly enjoyed the activities which you provided. They both filled their sticky cards, and were fascinated by the bush craft demonstration, pond dipping, animal bones and bug hunt.

    Thanks again for a great day, we’ll definitely be back next year if you run the event again!
