9:54am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
YOUNGSTERS will be able to enjoy a host of spooky events organised by the Dorset Wildlife Trust this Halloween.
Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve at Toller Porcorum is offering children a rare chance to see moths and bats through its remote camera traps as well as to use a bat detector, carve a pumpkin and listen to spine tingling stories.
The fun runs from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday, October 31 and costs £5 per child.
There will also be a Halloween theme at the Caterpillar Kids Club at Lorton Meadows from 10.30am to 12.30pm the same day with a creepy quiz and lots of scary activities including bat mask making.
The session costs £2 per child.
Other events include a chance to discover creepy critters living in the sea at the Fine Foundation Marine Centre at Kimmeridge from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, November 2 and a Halloween Happening event from 1pm to 4pm at Wareham Library on Thursday, October 31.
Dorset Wildlife Trust communications officer Sally Welbourn said: “Halloween is a great opportunity to invite families along to reserves in Dorset to explore the more unusual wildlife lurking behind the trees and in the depths of the sea. “What better way to spend Halloween than discovering what goes bump in the night in the world of wildlife.”
