Enjoy a fun day out discovering the wildlife of Fleet Pond…
Fleet Pond is Hampshire’s largest freshwater lake and provides much joy to the visitors and residents of Fleet. At just over 52 acres most of the area has been designated a Site of Specific Scientific Interest with a wealth of flora and fauna, biodiversity and natural habitats.
Several colour coded walks take routes around the pond and through the wetland and woodland making it easy to enjoy the diverse range of habitats.
Fleet Pond Society was formed in the mid 1970’s by local people looking to protect and restore the glory of Fleet Pond and is now a strong group of passionate volunteers who dedicate lots of time and energy into protecting the habitats and generating understanding and enthusiasm in others. Their dedication was recognised when the Fleet Pond Society was awarded Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award for Voluntary Service by Groups in the Community.
The Patron of the society is Chris Packham, well known wildlife TV presenter and advocate of the Clearwater Campaign, Click here to view the video and find out more.
