Many chances for kids to go wild this half term
1:00pm Monday 28th October 2013 in News
Dorset Wildlife Trust is celebrating the changing seasons by hosting some exciting autumnal events to encourage children to get out and about this half term.
To experience the colours and wildlife of the season, the Kingcombe Centre in West Dorset is hosting its last scavenger hunt tomorrow from 10am to noon.
Using a trail guided map, solve the wildlife riddles to find autumn-themed items.
Collect every item and win a special prize!
Lorton Meadows in Weymouth is holding Caterpillar Kids sessions, looking at autumn colours and wildlife on October 31 and November 1 and a family conservation task on October 30.
DWT conservation officer, Catherine Mason said, “When the seasons are changing, it is a great time to come and explore Lorton Meadows – the trees are covered with fruits and berries which attract birds and mammals at this time of year.
“We are looking forward to taking people around the reserve to explore wildlife and enjoy the stunning views.”
If you fancy visiting the stunning coastline in Dorset, and getting your wellies wet, the Living Seas Team's Welly Zone Project is holding its final event on October 30 from 10am to 12.30pm at Hengistbury Head.
You can search for clues to the marine life living beneath the waves and there will be a free Welly Zone pack to collect so you can record your findings.
The popular half-term Bird Bonanza is also returning to the Chesil Centre from October 29-31, where you can find out about garden birds and the best things to feed them.
There will also be fun activities for the kids (from 50p per item) such as making fat balls, bird houses and bird feeders.
Bird food will be available in the shop and the Taste* café has some tantalising treats to refresh you during your day out at Chesil!
