25 July – 30 August at WWT London Wetland Centre

Have your children ever been pond dipping?  Do they know how to identify animal poo? During the summer holidays children of all ages can discover their inner adventurer at WWT London Wetland Centre by going on an array of ‘wild’ adventures and recording them in their own Nature Explorer passport.

Little explorers can begin their voyage of discovery by picking up a Nature Explorer passport – free with paid admission to the Centre – from the front desk and collecting stickers for each of the activities they take part in, working their way up to gold.  What’s more if children don’t have enough time to fill in their passport on the day they can visit again for free to complete their mission if they bring their passport back with them.

Paul Lawston, learning manager at London Wetland Centre, said:

Being a Nature Explorer is great fun for all the family and really helps kids get interested in all sorts of wildlife.  Exploring the natural world is one of the most fascinating gifts you can give children and encourages them to protect nature in the future.  We’ll be on hand to help Nature Explorers complete some of their challenges, so come along and join us for an unforgettable summer of adventure.”
