The team at RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands are inviting visitors to an expert-led guided walk to admire and learn all about the rich array of wildflowers on the reserve, including beautiful orchids.
The event takes place on Wednesday 20 June from 10am-12pm and includes exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the reserve’s hay meadow, which boasts specialist flowers including yellow rattle and ragged robin.
Places are limited so advanced booking and payment is essential. The walk covers some grassland and farmland so is unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and a decent level of fitness is required. Suitable outdoor clothing and footwear should be worn.
Additionally, throughout June the ‘Wonderful Wildflowers’ self-led quiz trail encourages families to look a little closer at the colourful plants around the reserve’s nature trails and discover more about them. Available daily at the visitor reception from 9.30am-4.30pm, free of charge (normal admission charges apply to non-members).
On any day Explorer Backpacks are available for families to hire, packed with everything needed to discover more about the creatures that call Burton Mere Wetlands home. No booking required, cost £3. Self-led den building in the woodland is also on offer close to the visitor facilities, at no additional cost (normal admission charges apply to non-members).
