Join Signals this Autumn at Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve for a series of FREE creative workshops documenting the reserve through a variety of art forms and encouraging young people to respond to the outdoors.

As part of our The Year project, over the next 12 months we’ll be running a variety of projects for young people (11-25yrs) at Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve, exploring some of the stories from Essex Wildlife’s oldest nature reserve through photography, filmmaking, animation, video games and more. Thanks to funding from Heritage Lottery Fund its all FREE!

Bat Walk, 11+

Learn all about the fascinating nocturnal world of bats and have a go with a bat detector. Explore Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve under cover of darkness and discover what comes out when the sun goes down.

Arts Explorers, 11+

Discover, explore and conserve wild places. Over four days you’ll learn to connect with, enjoy, and care for Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve.

It’s non-competitive, inclusive and accessible.
