Celebrate Conservation and Christmas at RSPB Arne’s Pull a Pine Festive Weekend


Join the RSPB at Arne nature reserve this December for one of the biggest conservation events in the country. Invasive pine trees from forestry plantations have taken over the heathland.
Your help is needed to remove them – restoring the heath, saving the rare animals that call it home, and maybe bagging yourself a sustainable Christmas to take home too!
Over the Pull a Pine weekend, visitors can explore the Dorset heath at RSPB Arne while helping pull up the invasive pine saplings, giving the reserve’s special wildlife a home. Then cut your own larger pine tree to take home for festive decorations or a sustainable Christmas tree!
Throughout this special weekend visitors can enjoy the festive village with live music, an outdoor kitchen serving winter warmers, stalls selling local and festive wares, FREE festive crafting for children, and partner stalls including Wareham Fire Brigade, and Urban Heaths. Get your wellies on, dig out your hats and scarves, and join in for a wonderful festive day in nature.

Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December, 10am to 3pm (last entry 2pm). Advance booking is essential – tickets NOT available on the weekend. Book tickets here for £15.50 (under 18’s FREE, ticket still required)
