Enjoying the family fun day in Eastleigh yesterday, I saw two wildlife protection organisations in Eastleigh town centre.
The volunteers talked to many visitors and educated us about the importance of protecting the nature. You could visit their websites to support their important work.
The RSPB is UK’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. It protects threatened birds and wildlife so that our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life again. It also plays a leading role in a worldwide partnership of nature conservation organisations.
According to the RSPB website, there are activities for Chandler’s Ford RSPB Wildlife Explorers:
The group runs a great combination of indoor themed events with outdoor related events held on the following weekend. This along with the knowledge and enthusiasm of the leaders means that youngsters can really get connected with the world around them. If you would like to talk to someone about the way the group is run and how you are treated, please call the RSPB on 0800 917 8566. Call between 9 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday.
Indoor meetings Second Thursday of the month 18:45 – 20:00. Outdoor meetings Saturday once a month. (times advised in preprinted programme ). Membership £12 per annum.
