Exhibition of artefacts from Captain Scott’s Antarctic trip among summer activities at WWT Welney
INVESTIGATE underwater realms at the pond-dipping stations, learn about wetland wildlife with trails and become a wetland detective this summer at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust’s Welney centre.
Throughout summer visitors can witness dragonflies zipping up waterways, see young swallows taking to the air from the hides and enjoy wildflowers bursting with colour.
This summer the centre also offers the only chance to see an Antarctic exhibition, as real artefacts from Captain Robert Scott’s journey 100 years ago are on display throughout August.
Find out what it would have taken to have survived one of the most inhospitable environments on earth and see if you would have made the grade.
Also during the summer holidays, visitors can get a closer look at the nocturnal wildlife with a bats & barn owls event on August 17.
