About the event

All Trust events and activities taking place from 1st September onwards will be carried out in line with current government guidelines and Health & Safety practices at that time.  As this will change over the coming weeks and months, we ask that you check regularly on the website for updates as any of these events may be subject to change or cancellation.

Please help to protect our staff and other members by not attending any of these events if you or anyone in your household is feeling ill or have symptoms of Covid-19.

The Dormice population is in decline and they have become extinct in some areas of the UK. The changes in farming practices, loss of hedgerows and the fragmentation of woodland have all contributed to this

Dave Williams is a recognised Dormouse expert in Surrey. His vast knowledge and years of experience has helped to raise awareness of their plight and educate future generations on how best to protect them.

Dave will discuss his experiences in the study and management of these creatures, the correct placement of dormouse boxes and how he surveys & studies them. After a brief break he will then guide you around the Nower Wood Educational Nature Reserve identifying the location of the dormouse boxes and you will check the contents. You may be lucky enough to find one on the day.
