News & Events Events Snakes in the Heather 06th November Sunday Funday Volunteering Our Snakes in the Heather Sunday Fundays have been put together for groups of families and friends who want to support local wildlife whilst learning all about it too. They take place on Parley Common in Dorset; a heathland nature reserve which is home to all sorts of wonderful and unique species including reptiles like the smooth snake. The meeting point is the Centre, Ferndown, which has a large public car park attached. Give me a call on 07388 948442 if you cannot spot us. We will be helping to clear invasive pine trees, making a bonfire with the waste trees if it isn't too wet and stopping half-way for a break which is the chance to learn a few fun facts about the UK's reptiles. The activities may be adapted if it is wet or windy. Please dress in layered clothing and bring any extra snacks and drinks you might want with you. Snacks and hot drinks are provided for everyone and tools for the adults only. All ages are welcome; children must be supervised at all times. Book using the button below. There are a number of other great ways to get involved in the Snakes in the Heather project.

Snakes in the Heather is supported by a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant. Booking for this event has now closed.
