Nature and Wildlife Fair

Discover what’s on Wareham’s doorstep!

We are organising a community fair celebrating Purbeck’s amazing natural riches and its exciting future.

Experts from a range of the many wildlife and environmental groups working in the area will be on hand to answer your questions with displays and films about:

  • The UK’s first “super” national nature reserve on the Purbeck heaths
  • Plans to reintroduce wild beavers
  • The ospreys breeding here for the first time in more than 300 years and the white-tailed sea eagles now flying over our wetlands plus the many other birds that can be seen in Arne
  • Dorset Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves and major rewilding schemes around Wareham
  • Plus more about the varied flora and wildlife in Wareham Forest and the rivers and water meadows that surround us and the many ways you can explore all this.


Refreshments will be available during the fair. And visitors will be able to pick up a new leaflet produced in collaboration with Visit Wareham, which provides information and a map about all local nature and wildlife destinations and how to get there.
