Coastal Creations for Kids


Join Ranger Julie and Ranger Alice this February half term to learn about the Solent’s wonderful winter birdlife and make your own bird-inspired masterpiece.

After a short, introductory talk, we will head outside to explore the coast at Lepe Country Park.

While we’re out, we will see if we can spot some of the birds that visit us in the winter – we’ll use telescopes to get a really good look. Then, we will head back to the classroom and use materials provided to create a work of art to show what we love about the birds we have seen.

We can’t wait to see your creations!

This event is for children aged 4 – 11. All children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the session.
