A Date for your Diary

Wednesday, July 8th 2015

It is now less than two weeks until our Festival of Nature on the weekend of the 18th and 19th July. Foxglove will be a hive of activity with naturalists leading guided walks and events to explore the reserve and discover what wildlife make its home here. Local groups including the drystone walling association and The Richmond Beekeepers will also be running activities for young and old alike to enjoy.

Our volunteers will be out in force leading pond dipping sessions, minibeast safaris and other activities. For those interested in traditional crafts the Foxglove Bodgers and other artisan craftsmen will be based at the car park demonstrating their skills, and allowing visitors to have a go themselves.

Food and refreshments will be available in the Field Centre. For more information on the events we have planned please visit our events page.

We hope to see as many of you as possible during the festival!
