You are in [Freeman’s Marsh] [Public Events]

Welcome to the Freeman’s Marsh summer events programme.  The marsh is one of the best places to see wildlife in the Kennet valley.

Over the winter months the conservation group works hard at work scrub bashing and helping to restore the river. This is all part of a long-term conservation plan drawn up with Natural England and the Environment Agency. Thank you for helping out on the tasks.

Thanks also to all those keeping your dogs on leads during the bird nesting season which runs from 1 March – 31 July. Please keep to the paths with your dog on a short lead in the area protected for wildlife between the river and the canal. You are welcome to exercise your dog off the lead on land between the canal and the railway.

Please enjoy the marsh in all its glory this season and we hope to see you out on the some of the fascinating events exploring our wildlife this summer.
