Join is for a free event for the family at Slader’s Leigh, a Local Nature Reserve, a day filled with bug and reptile spotting, land art, den building, badge, mask making and more. There will be guided trips through Shute Shelve Tunnel, rock displays and – the orchids will be out in all their glory.
Slader’s Leigh is the perfect spot for a picnic where the little ones can enjoy some freedom to play and climb a tree. Refreshments, shelter from the sun, should we be so lucky, and toilet facilities will be available.
All activities are free, but donations will be welcomed.
This event will be run by the Mendip Hills AONB staff, volunteers and Young Rangers, by kind permission of The Mendip Society.
Time: 11am – 3pm, weather permitting.
