Upcoming Events

Nature is an endless source of inspiration and we believe in exploring it in as many wonderful and inventive ways as possible –  join us on one of our free events or seminars so you can see and learn more for yourself!

Our pop-up events on the Isle of Wight include Under The Pier, Beach, Bugs & Bones, Crab & Ships, Dawn Chorus, The Christmas Garden and more. We also run the Bay Coastal Community Team (Shaping the Bay) and our Discovery Bay programme of events are designed to reveal the extraordinary science and lifelong inspiration of the natural world available to all in Sandown Bay. Join us for Discovery Bay and become a ‘Bayologist’ in 2017!
