Junior Wetland Rangers

Do you think you have what it takes to care for our beautiful wetlands and super wildlife, and help us with our daily mission to save wetland nature?

Why not join us and become a Junior Wetland Ranger this summer and put your skills to the test!

Come rain or shine, our team is responsible for keeping all of our feathered and furred animals safe and healthy – caring every day for all the different species of birds and mammals that call London Wetland Centre their home. No matter the season or the weather, they’re always working hard to make sure that our wetlands and wildlife are well cared for.

As a Junior Wetland Ranger we’ll test your animal knowledge, mess cleaning and more, to see if you’re up to the task! Join Top Trainer Sam Feather and Rookie Ranger Charlie Beak in this fun interactive family session, taking place throughout the summer holiday.

Set off to explore our wild reserve after the session with our Junior Wetland Rangers trail card and discover what makes wetlands amazing!
