One Wild Day at Wallasea is nearly here!
Due to this event the South Essex visitor centre will be closed. The Wildlife Garden will still be open for you to enjoy.
This event is an amazing opportunity to come along and discover the incredible work for wildlife that is happening right here in Essex. The Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project is an exceptionally ambitious project aiming to transform this island back into a magical intertidal coastal marshland of over 600 hectares. This event will give you a unique chance to explore the island and find out more about how the RSPB are working with others such as Crossrail to make it happen.
It will be a fabulous family day out with the chance to get up close and personal with the bugs and beasties that live on the island, discover what lurks in the mud and find out how you can take action to help the wildlife of the island as well as the wildlife in your own back garden.
With cracking entertainment from local band Illicit and the amazing Jakob Deist alongside local beers, yummy cake and scrumptious ice cream the day is set to be an excellent one.
We hope to see you there!
Please note the London to Southend Bike Ride will be happening on the same day. The below map shows the route they will be travelling and a suggested alternative route to get to the event.
