Festival of Nature

Friday, July 3rd 2015

Following the success of our Bioblitz weekend in 2013, Foxglove will once again host a weekend of nature events on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July. Local naturalists will be joining us for the Festival of Nature to lead guided walks where you will be able to discover more about the beautiful flora and fauna found here on the reserve.

There will be a range of activities for families including, pond dipping, minibeast safaris and natural workshops where you will be able to explore the fascinating lives of our animals. Volunteers will be on hand to lead guided walks where you can experience the reserve, learning how Foxglove has developed since its conception in 1992.

We will also have artisan craftsmen demonstrating their skills, and running workshops over the weekend including pottery, rope making, felt making and green woodworking. Local botanical artist, Karen Innes, will be running an art workshop for beginners over the two days.

Freshly made cakes, sandwiches and lunch will be available from the Field Centre as well as a range of hot and cold drinks.

There will be an entrance charge of £2 per adult and £1 per child for the weekend. Our annual summer BBQ will also be held during the Sunday afternoon, with tickets available from the Field Centre.

We are very excited about this event and looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the reserve to enjoy the festivities over the weekend.
