Date with Nature

Come and experience ‘A Date With Nature’ at the New Forest Reptile Centre.

Using the latest hi-tech gadgets you can look right into the tree-top nests of the New Forest Goshawk and watch their every move – from eggs hatching to food arriving and chicks leaving.

Want to find out more? Visit the New Forest Reptile Centre near Lyndhurst, where staff and volunteers are on hand to explain more about the bird’s behaviour and answer any questions as they have the live webcam on show to visitors.

You can also see unique wildlife viewed in ‘pods’ at the Centre, such as the reptiles and amphibians native to the New Forest. Discover the rare wildlife living in our National Park and learn how you can help protect our most vulnerable species.

Drop in for Wild Wednesdays during school holidays from 10.30am – 3.30pm, with reptile and bird quizzes, trails and activities.

A Date with Nature in the New Forest runs daily from Easter to the end of the summer holidays, 10.30am to 4pm. Entry to the Reptile Centre is free although donations for parking are welcome. The project is a partnership between us, the RSPB, Forestry Commission and Carnyx Wild.
