Gilbert White’s House and Gardens in Selborne will be hosting Nature Day on May 14 from 10.30am until 5pm.

There will be bird spotting walks, bug hunting, pond dipping, oak leaf art with artist-in-residence Sophie Hacker and discovering the wonders of soil and earthworms with scholar-in-residence Dr Terry Biddington.

Environmental experts from the RSPB and the National Trust will share wildlife facts and stories, and answer questions. Activities for children include the River Wey Trust’s augmented reality sandbox, and making a nature memory wand using natural materials with the Selborne Landscape Partnership. Entry is £9 for adults and free for children.
