Knoll Beach National Trust Car Park, Studland, near BH19 3AH.

Great free family event (car park charges apply unless you're a NT member) and dogs can come too!

Come and enjoy childrens activities, find out about local wildlife and management of the area and

have a go at some just-for-fun doggy activities- novices welcome!

Dorset Dogs pit stop will be there, you'll also find activities and information galore at the stands of the Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Trust (ARC), Dorset Wildlife Trust, the Forestry Commission, firefighters from DWFRS, Dorset Police, the National Trust rangers, the Plantlife/Back from the Brink stand and the Urban Heaths Partnership travelling trailer (don't miss the diorama).

You can even do a landrover safari across the heath with the NT rangers (someone will have to stay behind with your dog - go and have a cuppa at the dog-friendly tables outside the cafe?), those are running between 10am and 2.30pm.

LOOK at all these extra activities too: ARC are telling us all about the reptiles that live in Dorset at their Reptile Talk between 12-12.30pm whilst starting at 13.30pm from the Back from the Brink stand there's an hour's 'Living Fossil' walk  followed by a Forest Wildlife talk at the Forestry Commission stand staring at 14:45pm for about half an hour.


Dogs are welcome on all of Studland's beaches under effective control (eg so they don't approach other visitors) but must be on lead 1st May-30th September but you can timetable off-lead time into your day - check out Sandbanks Beach West
on the Poole side of the ferry, or from the Studland side try the far end of Swanage beach towards Old Harry Rocks (the 'wild' end of the beach with no prom behind) or Days Park in Swanage.
