The site is at the start of the cycle track to Cowes, by the roundabout near Buywise on the Dodnor Industrial Estate. There is a small gravel car park for visitors to use. There is a small charge for parking that goes towards the upkeep of the site.
Rachel from Gift to Nature will guide the walk around the meadow path to learn and look at all the wildflowers. We would like you to spot the butterflies and count them as part of the Annual Big Butterfly Count.
Rachel will be leading the craft session, where you will be making pictures using dried flowers and then framing them with twigs. Afterwards join the group Picnic and relax in the meadow by the river.
Please wear clothing suitable for the weather and bring sun-cream and a sun hat. Please also bring some picnic food and drink to contribute to the group Picnic and a camping chair.
This Green Time activity is open to children accompanied by parents, young people and adults, with no upper age limit. Dogs are also very welcome, but must be kept on a lead at all times.

Big Butterfly Count
The Big Butterfly Count is a UK-wide citizen science survey led by the nature conservation charity, Butterfly Conservation. It is the largest citizen science project of its kind, and we need YOU to help us learn more about how butterflies are faring across the whole of the UK.
The event runs from July 15th for three weeks and all you need to do is spend 15 minutes in a sunny spot and count the amount and type of butterflies you see. You can download the free Big Butterfly Count app now.
