Thursday, 2 April, 2020 - 11:00 to 13:00

Discover some of the amazing wildlife looked after on this farm at Easter time.  As the season changes so do the habitats and special creatures found here - from emerging insects to chicks hatching, the first flowers and departing geese.  These walks will give you a chance to see it all close-up and learn how we manage this important place for nature in our fields and on the wetlands.

Easter Fun Friday

Friday, 10 April, 2020 - 11:00 to 15:00

 Get busy in "Badgers Corner" on the swings or slide.  Scurry through the tunnel or be creative in hte sandpit or mud kitchen.  Then get crafty, building nests for all those Easter eggs you hope to have (no eggs included).  Easter Bunny will not be out until Sunday so go in search of some egg-layers instead and take part in our creature hunt.

If staying for the day please bring a picnic.
