Get involved in local conservation

Walk our Wetlands Conservation Trail

The story so far...

In 2012 we started to develop our Wetlands Conservation Trail to encourage native species of wildlife into the Park.

We have had great help from the Dorset Wildlife Trust and Martin Young from "Nectar Plants." They have provided us with their skills, advice and plants. We have also had help from local students to clear and dig out "Butterfly Bridge."

We are committed to our Wetlands Area which will continue to evolve as shrubs, trees and grasses grow, and the local wildlife moves in, to make it their own. 

Duck feeders for scatter and pond food are available for 20p per handful. Each spring, new arrivals can be found finding their feet on the water. 

Find out more about our Wetlands Area as you walk around, including projects such as our Bug Hotel, Bee Hotel, Log Piles, Hedgerows, Butterfly Bridge and Rubble Piles.
