Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve, Broadway, BH6 4EN
From £5.00 per person for RGS-IBG members, £10 for non-members.
Hengistbury Head is a very diverse SSSI and contains a wide range of habitat, including salt marsh, sand dunes, heathland and woodland.
A walk here in the summer will result in sightings of some of our butterfly species, a demonstration of some moths that were collected in the trap the previous evening, some of our bird species (including Dartford Warbler and Skylark) and a visit to our Natterjack Toad ponds (a European Protected Species) to discuss how the reintroduction of this amphibian has resulted in a sustainable population.
The guided walk will last for approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours, some short parts of the route involve steep slopes/steps and an option will be offered midway for those wanting to cut short the route and return to the Visitor Centre. The length of the walk is around 2km. There is a pay and display parking lot on site (BH6 4EN).
Contact Lu Esteves to book in advance on 01202 962446 or by email.
An evening of 10 minute presentations, comprising a maximum of 12 images, on various specialist subjects or places visited, near and far!

When we talk about human history, we tend to focus on great leaders, mass migration and decisive wars. But how has the Earth itself determined our destiny? How has our planet made us?
