The centre is housed in 18th Century buildings in a nature reserve
Chew Valley will be getting a touch of royalty on Tuesday, 25 May when HRH The Duke of Kent visits the Folly Farm Environmental Centre.
The popular venue, which can be found on the outskirts of Bristol and Bath, opened in 2008 at a cost of £4.5m.
The centre aims to offer people in nearby urban areas a chance to explore nature and it is set in the heart of a 250 acre nature reserve.
The nature reserve is owned by Avon Wildlife Trust at Bishop Sutton.
The Duke of Kent will be accompanied by The Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset, Lady Gass.
They will be greeted by BBC presenter Philippa Forrester who is the vice-president of Avon Wildlife Trust.
The Duke of Kent will tour the Folly Farm Centre, meeting children from Winford Primary School and volunteer gardeners from The Brandon Trust for adults with learning disabilities, who manage the kitchen gardens.
The Folly Farm reserve is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of the national significance of its wildlife habitats and species.
In particular, its ancient woods, wildflowers, bats, butterflies and barn owls.
