Families can discover the wonder of wetlands this summer, with a self-led Wetland Explorer activities at Arundel Wetland Centre.

Designed to teach valuable skills while having fun outdoors, these interactive challenges will reconnect visitors young and old with the natural world through wild play and exploration.

Can you listen like an owl? Create the art of nature? Can you spot the different ways that birds feed? Go snap happy and collect photo memories? Grab your free logbook on arrival and tick off the self-led tasks as you venture around site to earn your Wetland Explorer sticker as a take-home reminder of your great day out!

Or why not get even more hands-on during a pond dipping activity session daily with the Learning team and included with admission (donations gratefully accepted).

Plus, dont miss the seasonal wildlife action out on our reserve, with highlights including young sand martins at the Sand Martin hide, ponds buzzing with colourful dragonflies and meadows awash with our stunning wetland wildflowers and butterflies.

Both play areas are fully open and the Water's Edge café is serving takeaway snacks and treats, to be enjoyed indoors or on the outdoor deck. Want to picnic instead? Eat surrounded by wildlife at one of our many picnic-friendly spaces.

Wetland Explorers runs from Sat 24 July Wed 1 Sept. Visit https://www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/arundel for admission tickets (must be pre-booked) and share your amazing adventures with us using #wetlandexplorers!
