WWT Slimbridge

Spring to Life at Slimbridge

Sat 27 May - Sun 4 June

A celebration of the spring season and all things new at Slimbridge! Spring is a time when everything is growing and bursting into life. The leaves are unfolding, birds out on our reserve are singing, butterflies are starting to be seen and new life is appearing across our wetlands.

Dates:       Sat 27 May to Sun 4 June

Time:        9.30am to 5.30pm

Cost:         Included in normal admission and free to members.

Join us for a whole week celebrating new spring life, fun in our grounds and out on our reserve with *Landrover Safaris, *VIP Duckery Experiences, a Duckling Creche, plus a new Spring To Life outdoor trail and specialist new animal exhibits within the centre, not forgetting springtime Arts & Crafts activities everyday!.

VIP Duckery Experiences

Join our expert aviculture team on a guided behind the scenes tour of our working Duckery. See the whole egg-to-duckling process, watch pipping eggs in anticipation and meet newly hatched ducklings and goslings, including some of the rarest breeds on earth. Take part in the fascinating practice of 'candling' (where a light is used to look inside an egg) and learn all about WWT’s conservation breeding programmes, which sees us rear hundreds of young birds each year and of course see tiny ducklings and goslings take their first wobbly steps in the outdoor pens.

Book your *Landrover Safaris on the day at Admissions for a small extra charge and spaces are limited. VIP Duckery Experiences are pre-bookable online only (please see the link below), for a small extra charge and places are limited to a maximum of 20 people per experience.
