Chard Wildlife Watch Club

Chard Wildlife Watch Club group logo

Chard Wildlife Watch Club runs sessions around the Chard and wider Blackdown Hills area. We meet at various locations, taking advantage of the best seasonal wildlife the Blackdowns has to offer, for sessions that last approx. 2hrs. Meetings are at the weekend and are currently scheduled every two months, with a few extra sneaked in for special events. Activities are aimed at 5-11 year olds and we ask for parents and carers to remain with their children. We try to offer activities for free whenever possible but occasionally, if we have to pay for venue hire or to bring in additional experts, we may charge a small fee to cover costs. Contact us at for more info about what we have planned.
