DJW helps local nature reserve with a new Visitor Centre
Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve is very close to DJW, and gets around 1 million visitors each year. Those visitors will now be able to get more out of their visit with the opening of the Visitor Centre yesterday. Built into an existing thatched barn, the visitor centre has displays installed by DJW showing active wildlife around the Head, results from the weather station installed on the roof – possibly inspired by BBC Springwatch we think!
