Heath Week Herbivores

27th July @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Pretty pink poster to advertise the Heath Week event. Details below.

Grazing is amazing! Livestock are a common sight on the heaths, so come to meet our wardens and hear about the benefits of grazing with animals such as cattle, sheep, goats and ponies. 

Guided walks in collaboration with Surrey Wildlife Trust will leave Salt Box Road Car Park at 11am and 1pm. Short walks of approx. half an hour in small groups. No dogs on the guided walks please.

After each guided walk there’ll be a chance to listen to a story with Warden Jeremy. If you miss the walk, please do ask Jeremy to read a short story about Big Bill the Beltie Bull, from the books by Jayne Baldwin and Shalla Gray.

Or step into our arts & crafts gazebo and colour in a ‘Beltie’.

FIND US: This event will be held near the Salt Box Road Car Park, Salt Box Road, Guildford, Surrey GU3 3LH. What3Words: meant.themes.rugs. There’s a modest amount of free parking available here.

FREE. Suitable for all ages, especially families with school age children. Drop-in anytime between 10am and 2pm. Well behaved dogs on leads welcome at the pop-up display and in the craft gazebo.
