Family holiday fun: wildlife at Blaise

Join us for some wildlife-inspired family friendly holiday fun this half term.

There’ll be nature crafts, storytelling and plenty of activities to enjoy:

Hunt for mini-beasts with the Bristol Regional Environmental Records Centre team and find out about the wildlife on the Blaise Estate.

Make a wildflower seed ball to take home with My Wild City and learn more about the local wildlife sites involved in this exciting Avon Wildlife Trust project, including nearby Lawrence Weston Moor and Saltmarsh Drive Open Space.

Find out about the wildlife along the river Trym with the Trout on the Trym, an informal group of local residents working together to improve the ecology of the River Trym & Hazel Brook.

Discover how you can get involved in improving the environment with the Friends of Blaise, the Friends of Badocks Wood, Sustainable Henbury and Brentry, Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle Climate Action Group, Sustainable Southmead and other local groups.

Explore Blaise Community Garden, filled with wildlife-friendly flowers, ponds and their very own bee sanctuary from 10am to 2 pm.

Blaise Plant Nursery will also be open from 10am until 4pm and is stocked with plenty of plants for you to buy.
