Nose-to-nose with nature at RSPB Sandwell Valley
Last modified: 05 September 2012
The RSPB wants to get the community nose-to-nose with nature, celebrate local wildlife and have some real wild fun.
So far this summer, visitors to the nature reserve have come eye-to-eye with creepy crawlies, had some very close wildlife encounters and played detective to work out what owls have for tea.
There are more close-up encounter events to come, including making some furry mammal friends at ‘Meet the Mammal Day’ on 9 September and ‘Pond-dipping’ for mini-beasts on 15 and 16 September.
There is a small charge for each event and booking is essential, people can contact the reserve for more information on 0121 357 7395, email firstname.lastname@example.org, visit www.rspb.org.uk/sandwellvalley.
RSPB Sandwell Valley is passionate about connecting children and adults with nature, helping them to realise how amazing the creatures that live on their doorstep really are.
Pippa Jones from the RSPB said: “Come along for the fantastic opportunity to see wildlife close-up in a way you just don’t normally get to – I remember attending events like this at Sandwell Valley as a child, and the memories will stay with me for life!”
The reserve is free to access and exciting events are run regularly.
