Kent Wildlife Trust and The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) have launched an international competition for the architectural design of a new flagship Visitor Centre for the Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve offering key messaging around nature, health and wellbeing.  You can see full details here.

Today Michael attended a view of the four shortlisted designs (selected from over 200 submissions).

Kent Wildlife say:  ‘The Nature and Wellbeing Centre will be the gateway to Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve.  It will be the first centre of its kind in the country dedicated to connecting people and nature in ways that evidence and demonstrate positive benefits for both people and wildlife. It will also raise awareness about the importance of conservation work on our own wellbeing and that of the planet.@

The Jeffery Harrison Visitor Centre, Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve, Bradbourne Vale Road, Sevenoaks, Kent TN13 3DH is  full of information and activities – why not go and see what is being planned for the future?
