Saturday 19th May, 9am until 11pm
Find us at the war memorial by the Ranger’s Yard, Comber Road, sat-nav DY7 6HU. Free lay-by parking.
This Saturday, Kinver Edge will be hosting a day of free wildlife activities and guided walks for the whole family, so that you can get up close to nature.
In the morning there will be a bird-ringing catching our feathered friends, and all afternoon you can have a go at pond-dipping in our Ranger’s Yard. All day there will be a pop-up laboratory where you can check-out creepy crawlies that we’ve caught under microscopes, and handle at the amazing natural artefacts on our nature table (like snake skins, deer skulls and live moths!). Throughout the day there will be free guided walks, from reptile rambles looking for snakes to bird song strolls: all free, just drop in and have a go. In the evening stray up late to listen to bats with our detector equipment and hunt for moths with mega moth-traps.
There’s no need to book on to any of the walks, just turn up on the day at the Ranger’s Yard.
Helen Selkirk, Visitor Experience Officer for Kinver Edge says:
‘How often do you get to hold a blue-tit, or see a wild snake? We know that our visitors already love the wildlife of Kinver Edge, and now they have a chance to get that bit closer. Find out what is flying above your head at night, and buzzing in the heather! It’s also a great chance to meet the Ranger here and ask about our conservation work.’
