We have loads of great wildlife events for adults, kids and families in Somerset. Hopefully the list below will give you lots of ideas for things to do, and give you more information about the interesting and fun activities you can take part in. Take a look at what's on below.
Trouble finding your way?
Because some of our events and things to do are held in the wilds of Somerset they include a grid reference as a meeting point - post codes are too imprecise. To see the location for the activity on a map go to Street Map and type in the grid reference (e.g. ST456437 no spaces.) If you zoom out you will first see the OS Explorer and Landranger maps which have more detail and then larger scale maps. Go to Street Map now.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Children’s Wood Project where trees were planted on the site for each child born in Taunton Deane. To celebrate the anniversary, as well as National Apple Day, we will be holding a family event in the wood on October 28th. The event will include lots of family activities such as apple juicing, arts and crafts and apple head carving. There will also be an apple circus run by FUSE Performance where you can learn to juggle with apples, make and take home some juggling balls and have a go at circus tricks and antics in a colourful bunting tent. Light refreshments will be available on the day.
