The days are starting to get warmer and brighter and the Easter break is a great time to get out and have some fun. We know that this year is a bit different but we still have loads of activities to keep families connected with nature during the holidays. 

We are offering outdoors activities at some of our reserves for people to attend in line with government guidelines. A few of these can also be completed at an outdoor location of your choosing.

We are also running a Virtual Easter Egg Hunt which you can do at home.  

Virtual Easter Egg Hunt

Welcome to our Virtual Easter Egg Hunt!

We’ve hidden 10 eggs across our website and each of them will lead you to some fun activities to do over the holidays.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Read the 10 clues below which will tell you where to find the eggs
  2. Click on each egg to unlock a letter and some activities for you to do
  3. Once you have found the 10 eggs and collected all the letters, unscramble them to make an Easter-themed phrase
  4. To receive a copy of the solutions and some additional activities, click the orange button below and complete the form

  2. On which page have we put all our resources to help you connect with nature?
  3. Find the page which will help you identify ducks which dive under water to feed.
