The New Forest is a National
Nature Reserve situated on the south coast of England. The landscape
is a mix of heathland, grassland, bogs and woods. Domestic animals
are permitted to roam freely throughout the Forest.
Visit Beaulieu Motor Museum, catch a ferry from the pretty town
of Lymington to the Isle of Wight or just enjoy the many cycle
trails, walks and forest villages.
Walking with Wildlife: Project Fred
If you enjoy walking in the countryside and wish to see some
of the wildlife that the New Forest and surrounding area has
to offer then why not
contact Project Fred.
Project Fred is a family-run business which offers relaxed
nature rambles within the beautiful scenery of Dorset,
Hampshire and the New Forest. This area holds a wealth of
wildlife that includes many rare species, some of which are
found nowhere else in Britain. Find the rare birds, elusive
orchids, beautiful butterflies and dazzling dragonflies.
The walks are led by Simon Curson BSc, a trained ecologist
with over 10 years’ experience in teaching wildlife and
leading guided walks.
Walks are held weekly, throughout the year. For details of
