Great Fen Wildlife Watch

Great Fen Wildlife Watch group logo

The Great Fen Wildlife Watch group usually meets at the Ramsey Heights Countryside Centre, Chapel Road, Ramsey Heights PE26 2RS, which is located on an abandoned clay pit and is now a great place to see the nationally protected great crested newt amongst other exciting wildlife species. Our leaders, Barbara, Clare and Kathleen, are bursting with fantastic ideas for activities to send members home with a smile on their faces.

The group runs monthly meetings on the 2nd Saturday of the month throughout the year except January, August, and December, from 10am to 12 noon. The sessions are designed for children aged 6 to 11 years to attend with their parents, and younger siblings of school age are also welcome. For more information, please contact the team on 01487 710420. For more information about forthcoming events see the event diary below. We look forward to welcoming you to the group.
