RPSB ARNE is getting set for a “big wild summer” as it prepares to host a series of nature-themed activities over the summer holidays.

The family fun will run until Sunday, September 4 and includes the Big Wild Summer activity trail where kids are invited to become a ‘natural history detective’ to uncover the secrets of Arne’s past.

The self-led detective trail is aimed at children aged 3-11 years old, but grown-ups can of course join in the fun too.

Along with the summer trail, there are lots of other activities taking place at RSPB Arne, which is near Wareham, throughout the holidays.

Visitors can join in with reptile events, become an explorer with nature tots, have a smashing time in our play area or even join a Big Wild Sleepout.

Samantha Dallimore, Visitor Experience Officer at RSPB Arne, said: “We can’t wait to welcome visitors to the reserve to discover the wonders of nature at this time of year."

“Our Big Wild Summer activities provide a fantastic opportunity for families to come together and explore the outdoors. They’re a really easy way to connect with nature, have lots of fun and make memories that will last forever.”
