Ferne Animal Sanctuary
The Discovering Dragonflies project, generously funded by the National Lottery, will have its grand launch on Sunday 22nd July at Ferne Animal Sanctuary near Chard. This day will include free bookable one hour long taster sessions on willow weaving and jewellery making, pond dipping, and a special dragonfly, all tasters of dragonfly themed events which will continue through the next 14 months. All activities are free and for this day only kids get free entry into the Sanctuary too! There will also be displays in our Visitor Centre that will inform people about the project, how they can get involved further, and some fascinating insights into the lives of dragonflies too. Most of the activities will be undercover, so it’s a great day out for all the family, regardless of weather.
After the launch, the project will continue to offer a host of activities and workshops focused on dragonflies throughout the year including dragonfly-themed courses to get people thinking creatively about conservation – from photography and willow-weaving to jewellery-making and sculpture.
