Youngsters will have the opportunity to become Nature Explorers this February half-term when Pensthorpe Wildlife and Gardens hosts a special event for the whole family.

Suzanne Harvey, of Pensthorpe Wildlife & Gardens, said: “This is a great time of year to explore the Reserve as children have fun jumping in puddles and learning about bees.

“Discovering nature is an important part of Pensthorpe and our Nature Explorer event gives families a chance to roam around the Reserve, learning some fun facts on the way.”

She added: “Combine the event with our £1million outdoor WildRootz adventure play area, as well as our ever popular activities which include den building, a stamper trail and bug walk, and enjoy some wild adventures right on your doorstep. It really does make for a truly memorable family day out.”

Discover how you can make a hedgehog home, learn about how bees do a wiggle dance to communicate and interact with hands-on activities to get closer to nature on a self-guided trail around the Reserve. Plus they’ll be a special prize for families who answer all the trail questions correctly.

Other fun activities for children include trying to spot a Corncrake, learning to hum like a fly and the chance to colour your own woodpecker to pop on the WildRootz tree.

Learn about some of the species that share the natural world with us between February 15-23 at the reserve, which is open from 10am to 4pm.

Nature Explorers is included in the normal admission price.
