As part of the ICE Explore Engineering Event the Taunton City Club has arranged for a visit to an RSPB Reserve where an engineering project has been undertaken to enhance nature. The RSPB West Sedgemoor Reserve is part of the West Sedgemoor Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) one of the largest wet grassland sites in England. It has the largest lowland population of breeding waders. The water management system on West Sedgemoor has been the subject of joint works by the Parrett Drainage Board (IDB) and the RSPB to bring the SSSI into 'favourable environmental conditions.'

Information on the projects and the site will be provided by staff from the RSPB and the IDB with an inspection from the RSPB hide and a short walk into the reserve.

This will be followed by a walk (or drive) to the nearby Burton Pynsent Monument which was designed by Capability Brown and built in 1767 for Sir William Pitt as a monument to the local landowner Sir William Pynsent.

The group will then be retiring to a local establishment for refreshments.
