Saving England's most threatened species from extinction

The Last Ditch

Location: Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve, RH20 2EL.

Date: Saturday 12th October.

Time: 12.00 – 4.00pm.

A creative event exploring the endangered Little Whirlpool Ramshorn Snail and the ditches and environment it thrives in. The tiny and beautiful snail can fit on the pad of one of your fingers – with room to spare!

Artists Andy Evans and Gemma Gottelier from Outdoor Studios will lead creative activities inspired by the snail and the beautiful surroundings of Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve - one of the last locations where the little snail can still be found.

Participants will have the opportunity to see aquatic snails up close and in detail with pond-dipping activities, make mini clay snails and their homes or landscape paintings - foraging for autumn plants to create natural pigments for their artworks.

RSPB experts will be present to give insight into the special snail, why it’s endangered and the Back the from the Brink project working to save the snail.

Join us for any or all of the activities. The creative activities will be experimental and no prior skills or knowledge are needed. Demonstrations of these will be given at 12 noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.

For people of all ages.
