Wild about Wessex!

Family Fun drop-in event at Bleadon Levels 

Join us for a free day of outside learning at Bleadon Levels nature reserve near Weston-super-Mare. 

Learn about the history of the site and see the various wildlife and birds that live here on a self-guided tour around the reserve.

Our education advisers will also be organising some great activities for all the family and you’ll be able to discover how we treat waste water and safely recycle it back to the environment.

We’ll be running sessions from 10am to 3pm on: 

  • Tuesday 11 August
  • Wednesday 12 August

There’s no need to book – it’s free, so just turn up! You’ll find us at the car park by the disabled access bird hide.  Free parking and hand sanitiser will also be available on each day.

You can join us safely as social distancing will be maintained throughout. For more information email us at education@wessexwater.co.uk
