Wildlife celebration to be held in Cornwall

April 11th, 2016

Cornwall’s beautiful landscapes and magnificent wildlife are a sight to behold and now with the Cornwall wildlife Trust you can come to the county and celebrate it.

The two day event on April 23rd and 24th, aims to showcase the work they do to protect the land and the animals, plants and insects that flourish here. The event at Trebah Gardens in Mawnan Smith, near Falmouth, will have a host of wildlife activities for all the family, with it being just a short drive from our holiday accommodation in Cornwall.

This is the third consecutive year that Trebah Gardens has partnered with the Wildlife Trust for the event, which gives visitors the chance to get up close and personal with buzzards, hawks, owls, reptiles and bats which are at the gardens through the Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre and the Cornwall Bat Group. With Trebah Garden’s director, Nigel Burnett, saying: “We are delighted to again play host to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust and support such a worthy cause.”

Mark Nicholson, chairman of trustees for Cornwall Wildlife Trust said:

“As well as being a very enjoyable event, our Wildlife Celebration is a brilliant way for you to meet our people and find out about the work we do. And if anything you see encourages you to help us in conserving wildlife, by becoming a volunteer or a member, that’s even better.”

Alan Hyde, Head of Communications for South West Water, said: “We are delighted to support this fantastic two-day event in a stunning location. It’s a great opportunity to get people talking about how looking after water is a starting place for looking after wildlife and how looking after both is good for everyone.”

Entry price will be £9 for adults, £8 for seniors and children £3. The gates will open at 10.30am and will be open until 4pm, and remember this is close to The Valley’s holiday accommodation in Cornwall making this an event not to be missed!
