DWT Giving Free Wildlife Gardening Advice At Open Day

Posted on: 09/04/2018

Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT) is pleased to be taking part in the Bournemouth Natural Science Society (BNSS) open day on Saturday 14th April, with its wildlife friendly gardening displays and experts on-hand to give advice.

The Great Heath team in east Dorset will be attending the event to advise local people in the urban area on making the most of their gardens to attract wildlife and help create habitat for much-loved hedgehogs, birds and pollinators to thrive.  The team will be based in the stunning hidden gardens on the site, which has a mix of native and exotic plant species, and is ideal for bird watching, studying insects and plants, and photography.

DWT Community Conservation Officer, Katie Wilkinson said, “We are so pleased to be taking part in this fantastic event for another year.  The gardens at the BNSS are really stunning and a great place to spend the day inspiring visitors to make their gardens and outside spaces a welcoming place for wildlife.  Bring your questions along and we’ll be pleased to help!”

The museum, which was accredited museum status by the Arts Council in 2015, will be open to the public to enjoy its exhibitions about Eygpt, archaeology, botany and geology, to name a few. There will be live insect demo’s and light refreshments, pond dipping for kids and lots of craft activities to take part in.

The BNSS open day is £3 for adults and £2 for children (under 5’s go free).  Small charges may be applicable for activities and donations are welcome) on Saturday 14th April from 10am – 4pm.  The museum address is: 39 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH1 3NS.  Free and pay and display parking can be found on surrounding roads.
