Wildlife and Wonder at Asham Wood

Asham Wood

Explore Asham Wood and take part in fun workshop sessions with the Somerset Wildlife Trust on Saturday 5 May.

Asham Wood

Asham Wood is a 140-hectare (347-acre) biological Site of Special Scientific Interest near Downhead in the Mendip Hills.

Asham Wood is the largest and most diverse of the ancient semi-natural woods in the Mendips. It has been the subject of controversy and attempts to protect the environment from increased quarrying activity in the area.

Discover this beautiful ancient woodland whilst trying something new.

You will be able to take part in sessions in woodland crafts, bird call identification, tai chi, nature discovery, spoon carving, charcoal making, woodland management, bat box making and wildflower identification.

There are morning sessions from 9.30 am and afternoon sessions from 2.45pm for a variety of different activites for all ages and interests.

Taking part in this event costs £6 for adults and £4 for children. You can come along for the morning or afternoon, but booking is essential.
