Become a Wetland Ranger this Summer at Arundel Wetland Centre

Families can join in the fun to become Junior Wetland Rangers at Arundel Wetland Centre this summer holiday. Follow in the footsteps of our rangers and help us with our daily mission to save wetland nature with 8 challenges along our Junior Wetland Rangers Trail.

Pick up your free Junior Wetland Rangers Record Book and set off for a full day of discovery and adventure and learn how to care for and protect our beautiful wetlands with a wide variety of wetland ranger activities:

  • Dressing-up as a Ranger for fantastic selfies
  • Animal health checks - find out how we keep our feathered friends safe and healthy and have a go at things like; how to weigh a goose and measure a swan
  • Bird ringing – discover what leg rings are and why they’re important. Have a go at making your own ‘ring round the birdie’
  • …and lots more

Sam McKinlay, one of WWT’s real life wetland rangers, said:

“I love working with WWT and helping to care for and protect our amazing wetland wildlife. We thought families would welcome the chance to experience what it’s like to be a ranger through special fun-packed, mini adventures, which include activities that I do as part of my day to day job. Hopefully, we’ll also inspire some of our younger visitors to become the wetland rangers of the future, helping to create a world where healthy wetland nature thrives and enriches lives.”

As well as Junior Wetland Rangers activities try a family pond dipping session for groups of up to 6 people at the Raised Pond. Book a Wetland Discovery Boat Safari when you arrive in centre for £3 per person.

Arundel Wetland Centre is open every day from 10am-4.30pm. The 65 acre wetland reserve has buggy friendly, paved, level pathways and sturdy no-slip wooden boardwalks. The boat rides, pond dipping and the wildlife hides are wheelchair accessible. There is free parking for visitors with the Water’s Edge coffee shop and a WWT gift shop onsite.
