Upcoming Events...

October

20/10/2018 - 04/11/2018
11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Education Room weekdays: Around Sanctuary everyday

We’ll be finding out where invertebrates live, what they look like close up, and why they are so useful.

Around the Sanctuary: Have a go at our trail, scouring the site to find bug hotels & homes, and collecting items to help build a giant communal bug hotel.

Education Room: We will have bug specimens and microscopes set up, including one linked to a big screen. See how amazing these little critters appear when seen large. There will also be bug crafts and step by step observational drawing guides too.

There really will be something for everyone! Come along at see what Somerset, Devon and Dorset have to offer and help us support local crafts.

This year we are trying something new – and we hope you will too!
