Spring is in the air, new life is blossoming at Wildwood and our Easter programme is starting this Saturday. We have plenty of Easter shenanigans to entertain adults and children over the egg-citing two week period, culminating in the big Easter weekend. All of our bookable events take place between 10:30 and 11:30 in the mornings and cost £4 per session (apart from our Junior Keeper day).
Saturday 1st April Nature Detectives Conservation scientists often have to study animals just from the traces they leave behind, can you rise to the challenge? Take a closer look at a range of animal artefacts such as skulls, antlers, nests and fur to see if you can work out which animal each object is linked to.
Tuesday 4th April Egg-cellent enrichment Help make some Easter egg themed treats for our critters then see them delivered to the animals on a walk around the park.

Saturday 8th April Food, digestion and poo Like most animals we love our food but what happens to our food once it enters our mouths? With hands-on activities you’ll track the journey our food takes as it is digested. Take a closer look at a range of animal poo and discover what it can tell us about the animal’s diet. Make a model of a horse’s digestive system to take home.
