Welly Wildlife Tour

24 March 2022

Wellington College Grounds and Gardens Manager, Mark Dodd, will take us on a tour of the College’s main estate grounds, which are not open to the general public, and share some fascinating insights into the delights and challenges of looking after this 440 acre estate. He will tell us how his team manages the wildlife conservation of this huge site, with its wide range of habitats and species.

Conservationist and teacher, Kat Dahl, will guide us around the College’s nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest. This protected area is a remarkable beacon of biodiversity, containing several nationally scarce habitats and species. She will tell us about the great variety of wonderful wildlife on this site, and how its conservation is managed by Mark and his team.

You will need suitable footwear and a reasonable level of fitness/walking speed to make sure we can get round in the 2 hour slot. Please be aware of uneven ground in parts.

Spaces are limited to 30 people so please be quick to secure your place. Please email community@wellingtoncollege.org.uk to book.

Meeting place will be at the Clock Tower on North Front and the tour will start at 6pm.
