Enjoy Wildzone: Spring to Life! Next month

Visitors to the Isle of Wight over the coming weeks might like to embrace the natural beauty and grandeur of spring on the island by heading along to a new event being organised by the National Trust.

Wildzone: Spring to Life! Will be taking place at Newtown National Nature Reserve on April 3rd and will offer families the chance to learn more about the changing seasons on the Isle of Wight and also about the many changes in flora and fauna which this brings.

Aimed predominantly at kids aged between five and 13, the event runs from 10:00 until 12:30 GMT and is set to include a number of hands-on activities that will get children excited about the great outdoors.

Standout activities on the day will include trekking through the local fields and meadows to discover more about the local plants and animals of the Isle of Wight, followed by the chance for kids to make their very own bird's nest.

Costing just £3 for all the family, all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult, while guide dogs for the blind are the only animals allowed to take part in the activities. Advanced booking is also essential as places can fill up fast on the day.

It is sure to be a day to remember for youngsters and parents alike, with expert guides on hand at all times to impart their knowledge on the Isle of Wight and they are always happy to answer any questions visitors might have.

Meanwhile, the National Trust's Winter Bird Walk is taking place next month from the National Trust visitor point car park opposite Newtown Old Town Hall.

Held on March 3rd and running from 10:00 until 12:30, the event will allow members of the public to head off on a guided tour of the local area to witness the array of avian wildlife which make the island their home at this time of year.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801538544-ADNFCR
