County’s Largest Nature Reserve set for Wildlife Roadshow

On Saturday 7th May, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust will be hosting a Spring Wildlife Roadshow at the county’s largest nature reserve. Just two miles from Retford Town Centre and the size of 600 football pitches, the Idle Valley Nature Reserve is one of the most important wildlife areas in the region. Activities on May 7th will include guided walks, bird watching advice, family pond-dipping and mini-beast hunts as well as nature detective sessions for children.

 

Idle Valley is home to many different habitats, including lakes, islands, grassland and woodland. The Wildlife Roadshow will give visitors a chance to explore the reserve and its on-site facilities including refreshments.

 

The nature reserve forms part of the Wildlife Trust’s Idle Valley Living Landscape project, one of the charity’s most ambitious schemes to date, which aims to link existing areas of habitat, improve public access and develop new opportunities for local people to learn new skills.

 

The Roadshow event is free and will run from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, May 7.
