Spring is here and Livability Holton Lee is singing, buzzing, croaking and hopping with life. The 140 hectares (350 acres) of nationally important wildlife habitat can be explored by joining one of Livability Holton Lee’s free wildlife walks running throughout the spring, summer and autumn.
The charity, equidistant between Poole and Wareham, is keen to share its grounds with local people and visitors.
Livability Holton Lee maintains areas of heathland, woodland, grassland, wetland, saltmarsh and reedbed, offering interest and diversity to those keen on the outdoors. There are bird hides, wonderful views over Poole Harbour and a reedbed boardwalk to explore, in what is a level and accessible site.
The centre also has field equipment that can be borrowed to enable people to get up closer to wildlife. Tours for those with mobility difficulties and wheelchair users can be arranged through using Livability Holton Lee’s fleet of mobility vehicles.
Geoff Jones Livability Holton Lee’s Activities and Education Coordinator says “If you have a group that would like to visit Livability Holton Lee and find out more about wildlife in general, or a particular species or aspect of nature conservation, then please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate you.
“We will provide a guide who will escort you around our grounds giving you opportunities to see the special wildlife that abounds here,” notes Geoff.
School groups (which can combine arts and science-based activities), older peoples’ groups, local communities, artists, clubs and businesses are all welcome to visit and enjoy a walk in a peaceful and beautiful part of Dorset.
