There is so much to see around Scilly's coastline, if you know what you're looking for and take the time to really look!  This is a fantastic opportunity to discover a little more about the most visited of our uninhabited Islands and the work that goes in to keeping it a haven for wildlife as well as an incredible place for people to visit. 

Join our Education Ranger for a special guided walk on Samson; looking for wildlife and Scilly treasures not just on land but at sea too; who knows what characters you might see? 

Maybe the elusive Scilly Shrew, possibly even Porpoise, Dolphins, Seals or some of our internationally important breeding seabirds?  There will also be an opportunity to wander amongst the archaeology and admire the beautiful "waved" maritime heath. 

Everyone welcome! Nothing is guaranteed but every session is different!
