Wild About Wetlands
Please note; the date for this event has changed from 24 July to 31 July.
It's that time of year again and it's time to go wild about the wetlands and take part in loads of fun and free activities!
For 2018 we have some amazing activities including:
Wetland Detective Trail - complete this and you'll win a prize!
Nature and wildlife arts and crafts
Make a dragonfly keepsake box
Meet the bees, bat and birds
Guess the nest/skull flip up quiz
and much much more!
Meet the animals from Lee Valley Park Farms including rabbits and guinea pigs, see the buzzing bees from Waltham Abbey Beekeepers, hold a bird of prey and listen to interesting talks about bats!
There will be two guided walks around the Cornmill Meadows taking place at 11:00 and 13:00 where we will be searching for minibeasts!
Get your face painted as your favourite animal for only £2!
