Hampshire and IOW Wildlife Trust have a great series of activities, workshops and events for people to get involved with through out the summer and autumn, all part of their ongoing Milton’s Hidden Seashore project. The project aims to have people from Milton and all over Portsmouth discover and connect with the Wildlife Trust’s Milton Locks Nature Reserve and the beautiful shoreline on to Langstone Harbour. This is an area we have a close affinity for and often run photography walkshops there too, it is something special.
All of these different activates cover all different ages and are all fun and engaging:
