Wild About The Wensum

"This fun filled family day is hosted by the Pensthorpe Conservation Trust to raise money for 'Operation Turtle Dove', a joint project between the Pensthorpe Conservation Trust, leading sustainable farming specialists Conservation Grade, the RSPB and Natural England to halt the potential extinction in the UK of one of our best-loved farmland birds. There will be lots of exciting activities running throughout the day based around conservation in the Wensum Valley. Activities on the day include participation in the free wildlife puppet making workshop, fairground rides, treasure hunts, creative crafts, face painting and a variety of have-a-go games.

The annual event will give children and adults an inspirational insight into the rich wildlife in the Wensum River Valley. Visitors can meet the people and organisations involved in managing the fauna and flora of the Valley and take part in many activities such as a free wildlife puppet making workshop in conjunction with the Norwich Puppet Theatre.

Due to its incredible wildlife richness the River Wensum has one of Europe’s highest conservation designations as a ‘Special Area of Conservation’; making it the only river between the Thames and the Humber to have this accreditation. It is hoped that spreading awareness of this special area will enable us to look after it for generations to come."
