New Fun Learning Courses to be Run by Dorset's Wildlife Trust

(Updated 7:27am 15th November 2012)

Ever fancied learning how to forage for wild food in true Bear Grylls style?

That's just one of the courses being offered next year at Dorset Wildlife Trust's Kingcombe Centre.

Other subjects you can learn about include natural history, and country skills and crafts.

Nick Tomlinson, Dorset Wildlife Trust's Kingcombe Centre Manager, said: "We are really excited by next year's programme, with many of the old favourites and some courses that are new for 2013, including grasshoppers and spiders as well as an increase in the range and number of craft courses and some new ones on art and meditation.  Over the course of the winter we will be making some much needed improvements to the facilities at Kingcombe which, combined with our exciting range of courses, will make a visit to Kingcombe all the more special".

Tucked away in the village of Lower Kingcombe, the Centre has accommodation in wildlife-themed rooms and a café serving freshly produced and locally sourced food, including its own range of cakes, flapjacks and preserves, surrounded by its own kitchen garden and the outstanding wildlife of one of the county's top nature reserves.

The Kingcombe Centre is in the village of Lower Kingcombe near Toller Porcorum, DT2 0EQ.
