Five years of sponsoring the Young Naturalists

We have been very proud to have sponsored the Young Naturalists programme for the last 5 years with the Hampshire and Isle of White Wildlife Trust.

It has been tremendous to develop this programme and reach many young people who have benefitted from the huge varielty of activities provided at the Blashford Lakes reserve near Ringwood. Not only has the programme vastly increased their interest and love of nature, but it has also helped improve confidence and help reduce anxieties.  

Here are some of the recent activities that were undertaken by the group and shows the many activities they have been able to participate in. We look forward to seeing this programme continue to grow from strength to strength.
