A brand new Ranger Den at Moors Valley (July 2018)

Moors Valley Country Park and Forest is celebrating the opening of a brand new experience at the Park.

The new Ranger Den was officially opened this afternoon by the Chairman of East Dorset, Cllr Toni Coombs.

Today’s special event at Moors Valley welcomed guests to learn more about the nature at the Park, with help from the resident Rangers.

At the brand-new Ranger Den experience you will get the opportunity to meet Bramble and Berry, the Park’s harvest mice, see a snake, hold a giant millipede, discover who lives in the pond and enjoy learning more about the fantastic wildlife who call Moors Valley their home.

Emma Reeks, Visitor Engagement Ranger at Moors Valley, said: “We’re so excited to open the Ranger Den. This new experience is a great way for us to celebrate the wildlife who live at the Park, whilst educating children in a fun and exciting way. The feedback this afternoon has been really positive, so as the school holidays draw ever closer we look forward to welcoming lots of new young Rangers to our Den!”

Cllr Toni Coombs, Chairman of East Dorset District Council, said: “The new Ranger Den is great fun and it is great to see the space revitalised into such a colourful and welcoming child-friendly space!”

“I’m grateful to all the staff and volunteers at the Park whose passion and enthusiasm continues to push this award-winning attraction from strength to strength. East Dorset District Council remains incredibly proud of Moors Valley and it is fantastic, even in its 30th year, we are continuing to invest and improve this well-loved attraction.”

The Ranger Den is open every day from 1pm-4pm during the summer holiday and at most weekends.
