Will you take up the challenge and become a Wildlife Ranger this summer?

Go on a wetland canoe safari or follow our bike trail, learn ranger skills like how to identify wildlife, hand feed our birds plus much more!

When you arrive at our centre you’ll receive your FREE Wildlife Ranger log book packed with everything you need for a day of exciting discoveries…

11am – 12pm Pond dipping - An hour long activity that includes lots of time outdoors at our pond zone, catching an abundance of creatures which we then take inside to our discovery room! Here our guide will show you a selection of what was caught under our giant microscope. This is a great chance to find out weird and wonderful facts about our pond life. Please note: We do have limited capacity for this activity therefore booking is essential. There is no extra charge but please sign up for this activity on arrival at the information desk.

12pm – 4.30pm Canoe safari and bike trail - Go on your own wetland adventure on our canoe safari; a great opportunity to get close to nature or head to the millennium wetlands where you can loan a bike and explore our wetlands on wheels.

1.30pm – 2.30pm NEW Wildlife Ranger Training – NEW for 2017 enjoy a mini safari out on our reserve with our guide who will help you learn a range of new skills like how to identify wildlife, how to spot hidden tracks and hunt for bugs!

2.45pm – 3.30pm - Flamingo talk & watch - Join our guide down at the flamingo pen as they talk about how we care for our colourful, Caribbean flamingos, how they care for their babies and how they're adapted to live in the wetlands. The talk will be at 2.45pm but our guide will there until 3.30pm with a telescope allowing you to get a closer look at our feathered friends.

Craft workshops (times vary) - Make your very own souvenir to take home with you. We offer a variety of craft activities where you can get creative! Please see our craft board at the Craft Corner for further details. (There is a small charge to make a craft which covers the cost of materials).
