Nest Boxes & Nibbles
15th February 2012
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm will be doing its bit to help local birds this spring by inviting members of the public to join in making nibbles and nest boxes. Taking place on Saturday, February 18th, this is an annual event which has proved very successful in the past. This weekend is the British Trust for Ornithology National Nest Box Week and the RSPB is making a final call for anyone who has not started on their nest boxes yet to make plans.
The zoo farm is open between 10.30am to 5pm though the nest box sessions will take place in the Education Room at 1pm and 2pm. While normal admission price applies, there will be a small charge of £3 to cover the materials necessary to make the nest boxes and the bird feed for those who want to partake.
Of course visitors will be able to use the full range of Noah’s Ark facilities during the day in what is the largest zoo in the South West of England. It has the longest hedge maze in Europe, massive indoor playgrounds and interactive areas where you can touch and feed the animals.
The nest box event will be very popular with educational school trips as Noah’s Ark holds the Quality Badge from the national 'Learning Outside the Classroom’ scheme. We invite any local schools who are planning school trips to join us for an educational day out in Bristol.
Visitors can take advantage of other interactive experiences at Noah’s Ark such as the chance to be a zookeeper for the day with keeper experiences available for big zoo animals such as big cats, bookable online or by phone on 01275 852606. Check out our link directory here .
