2018 National Trust Purbeck Events

You may already know that ‘Seashore Scavengers’ beach care group is now known as the COASTodians and there are further opportunities to get involved!

Do you have a favourite spot on the Purbeck coast? Why not become a Purbeck COASTodian

The COASTodian initiative, spearheaded at National Trust properties around the Welsh coast, is a simple and rewarding way to play a part in the care of our coastline. How you help and how often is up to you: You could help our beach rangers; monitor coastal change; or record the wildlife you see on your favourite walk. You could become an ambassador for your local patch and inspire others to care for the coast.

The group will be meeting at 10.30 am on the third Sunday of every month.

  • 18th February
  • 18th March

Please meet us outside the Discovery Centre at Knoll Beach, Studland to help clear litter from the beach, followed by another coastal activity. The day usually finished around 3.30 pm. You don’t have to stay for the whole session, but if you do then please bring some lunch with you.
