The main hall will have a variety of stands where people can learn more about wildlife and how we can help them, as well as craft stalls too.  Other organisations attending include Bird Aid, Sussex Biodiversity Records Centre, Sussex Badger Vaccination Project.

 

Between 12noon and 2pm vegetarian food will be service for a donation to help local wildlife.

 

Refreshments will also be available throughout the day.

 

“Last year’s event was a great success and really well attended and we have lots of really good feedback” said Trevor, “ so this year we have invited a few other different organisations and we are really looking forward to a great educational day. The event is suitable for a wide range of people from students studying animal science and conservation to the young and old interested in just learning more about how to help their local wildlife.”

 

The event is free of charge but donations are very much appreciated,
