Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Wildlife Watch Club will be held at Highbridge's Apex Park this Sunday (10th April) between 2-4pm.

Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Wildlife Watch Club will be held at Highbridge’s Apex Park today, Sunday 8th May, between 2-4pm.

The club is aimed at children aged 6-12 years and meets once a month, usually on the second Sunday of each month.

The groups are for children to make friends with other nature-loving young people and have fun taking part in practical nature activities.

“This weekend’s session will focus on the ‘wonders of willow’, and the children will discover interesting facts about willow trees and have a go at making a willow sculpture to take home,” says Margaret Micklewright, Wildlife Watch Leader.

“Children must attend with an adult who can stay for the whole session. Our Wildlife Watch Groups are organised by volunteer leaders who know about the local places and wildlife and are passionate about getting young people outside, exploring and having fun.”

“They generally work with their young members and local experts to organise all kinds of wildlife and environmental activities.”

To take part in the Somerset Wildlife Trust Wildlife Watch Club, families need to register their interest by emailing apexwildlifewatch@gmail.com before the event.

A charge to cover drinks and materials will be £2 per child (£1 for additional siblings). The next session of Somerset Wildlife Trust Wildlife Watch Club will be 8th May at Apex Park.
