Shapwick Heath Kids’ Big Bug-Hunt – 7th April

Join us along the Discovery Trail at the Ashcott Road end of our reserve to hunt for mini-beasts in the woods, have a go at pond-dipping and get bird-spotting tips in the Tower Hide overlooking the reedbeds of Meare Heath. Enjoy bug-inspired games and activities at this free, drop-in family day in Spring! The Marshes Hub Tea-Stop café will also have a pop-up open on the day.

This is a drop-in event, no booking required. Park at Natural England's Shapwick Heath NNR Ashcott Road Car Park where signs will direct you along the Discovery Trail to our pond-dipping platform. This event is wheelchair accessible and pushchair-friendly, it follows a short circular route from the car-park along a mobility-friendly footpath through reedbeds, woodland and lakeside habitats.
