A visit to our education area ‘The Covey’ was a must for all families at our 2018 fair, with a host of hands-on science, storytelling and fantastic arts all inspiring our next generation of budding young ecologists!

Our giant bird’s nest was home to our storytelling and chill out area for the young. Around the Covey we had moths, hatching quail and ferrets to entertain everyone. Julian Jardine ran his hugely popular ceramic workshops which proved very popular.

Along with a host of science focussed interactive displays where you could 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.

Our Virtual Reality videos looked at sensitive areas of our landscape, a peaty mocktail bar looked at how we can protect and restore our drinking water catchment areas and last but by no means least, a scavenger hunt where wader birds lead you around the fair.
