Strutt Your Mutt 2017

Sunday 11th June Woodfarm Barn, Benacre

Two and five mile walks on the beautiful Benacre estate

Benacre National Nature Reserve is managed by Natural England with much of the reserve being private property and not normally open to the public so, thanks to the kindness and generosity of Lady Gooch, taking part in Strutt your Mutt is a great opportunity to learn more about this beautiful area and the plants and animals that inhabit it. It is a fascinating example of England’s countryside at its diverse best with our walks taking visitors through a wide range of habitats ranging from farmland to heathland and from woodland to beach. Part of the estate has been internationally recognised as an area of special conservation value and is well worth the walk so take your binoculars and camera with you.
