Isle of Wight

We run a small nature reserve at Blackwater where we work with all community groups. We have several education and support programs that cover the national curriculum for primary schools, Home Educators, college students, unemployed and other vulnerable people - Our amazing volunteers help us to manage the nature reserve.  We are a place for parents who want to spend quality time with their children. We love what we do
