family taking part in autumn activities

This half term the RSPB is offering families the opportunity to learn more about nature whilst getting started on their Wild Challenge journey at two free ‘Autumn Wild Challenge’ events.

These are being held at Fletcher Moss and Chorlton Water Park on Wednesday 24 October.

Autumn is the best time of year to discover more about trees, leaves and seeds, and families are invited to take part in a variety of free nature discovery activities including a tree trail and wild bingo. Budding artists can also make some natural art to take home. Drop into the events at either venue any time from 11am until 4pm.

These activities count towards the RSPB’s Wild Challenge, which is a digital rewards scheme to encourage families to get closer to nature all year round, by completing fun activities that will help wildlife in their own back garden and the great outdoors. For more information about the Wild Challenge, visit


Fletcher Moss Park and Gardens. Use the Millgate Lane entrance, M20 2SW. Activities will be taking place in the wildlife garden.

Chorlton Water Park. Use the Maitland Avenue entrance, M21 7ND. Activities will be taking place by the lake.
