A visit to our new education area ‘The Covey’ is a must for all families, with a host of hands-on science, storytelling and fantastic arts throughout the weekend to inspire our next generation of budding young ecologists!

Come and visit our giant birds nest, home to storytelling and chill out for the young. Around the Covey we will have moths, hatching quail and ferrets to entertain all. For the creative amongst you, Julian Jardine will be running his hugely popular ceramic workshops, book in to hone your skills.

There will be a host of science focussed interactive displays, learn about the habitat of the Grey Partridge, use microscopes to explore the underworld of farmland and the upland environment – home to all sorts of creepy crawlies.

See what sort of work is carried out to protect our game and wildlife from tagging, tracking to predation control. The fun doesn’t stop there! We have Virtual Reality videos looking at sensitive areas of our landscape, there will be a peaty mocktail bar looking at how we can protect and restore our drinking water catchment areas and last but by no means least, a scavenger hunt with wader birds leading you around the fair.
