Have Fun This Winter
WWT, wetlands, wildfowl

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is one of the largest wetland conservation organisations in the world. They work in several areas in the UK, including London, where in November, they will be providing winter weekend family activities. During the weekends between the 10th of November and the 16th of December, there will be plenty to see. The ducks will start their breeding season, so will be frolicking with activity in their colourful feathered coats.

Every weekend there will be:

Nature Crafts

10.30am - 12.00pm, costs 1

Make scented cushions and pomanders. Pomanders are scented fruit balls that can be used as air fresheners. You could hang them up in your car on the ride home. You can also try your hand at collages, badges, keyrings, mirrors and magnets.

Otter Feeding

11.00 am & 2pm, free

Learn about the otters as they eat their breakfast.

Pond Dipping

12.30pm - 13.00pm, free

You, a pond, and a net. Learn all about the insects and other wildlife in the pond.

Bird Feed

Meet the wardens in the courtyard and they will let you follow them to the World Wetlands conservation area while they feed the birds.

Today's Special
