Conservation Pioneer activities for families begin on July 27 at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre. Each week of the summer holidays discover a different species of rare wildfowl like New Zealand Blue ducks, Hawaiian nene geese or the Red-breasted geese from Bulgaria. Crafts, trails and hands on activities bring the stories of these species to life, starting your child on a lifetime adventure of caring for and supporting nature.
This summer families can discover the butterflies and dragonflies flourishing on the wetlands while summer wildflowers explode on wet meadows in a palette of bright colours. It is a beautiful time of year to visit and take a boat safari through the wetlands to watch water voles.
The Pond Dipping station is open and the free Wetland Discovery Boat Safaris run every day of summer holidays. WWT Arundel Wetland Centre is open every day from 9:30am - 5:30pm, and located on Mill Road, Arundel West Sussex BN9 8PB. All Conservation Pioneer activities are included in the admission price.
