Amazing Migration!

Wednesday 20 April (Easter Holidays), 10.30am to 1.00pm

Meet: Sharpham Woodland Campsite


Events at The Sharpham TrustJust like us, the natural world is ready to spring back into action following the cold of Winter.

Some animals even travel from the other side of the world to join us in the UK to make the most of our warmer seasons. 

Learn which animals migrate, why and what challenges they face along the way.

We'll start at Sharpham's Woodland Campsite where we will play some fun games to find out about what migration is, which animals migrate and why. 

Then, we'll take binoculars with us for a nature walk through the woods and down to the River Dart to search for birds and other wildlife.

Join wildlife leader Phil Wilson on a fun, family Easter Holiday event on the Sharpham Estate.
