We will be celebrating water and wetland creatures this holiday! There will be pond minibeasts to investigate under a microscope in the education centre, information on bird feeding in the parks, a self-guided trail and more. We will have artefacts on display such as nests, skulls and feathers, found across our different parks!

Pond dipping sessions are also available to book for £5 per family for a 30 minute slot with a member of our Outdoor Learning Team on hand to help you identify any creatures you find.
