We love the countryside and know that you do too. Come along to this free event to find out how farming affects wildlife in the countryside and pick up some tips on how you can help wildlife at home too.
We’ll have pond dipping and bug hunting sessions and a wildlife trail for you to follow.
The Butterfly Brothers will be leading free wildlife walks around the farm on both days. They’ll explain what makes good habitat for wildlife, show you signs of spring flowers and any identify any wild creatures that happen to be passing. They will also be happy to answer your questions.
