Bird bingo launches fun holiday programme at EcoPark

Wednesday 10th February 2016

Free family activities bring children closer to nature in Small Heath.

The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country’s popular school holiday wild play sessions kick off next week with bird bingo.

Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery these free activities will be running every holiday throughout 2016 with a programme that will include minibeast hunts, pond dipping, natural arts and crafts and seasonal Halloween and Christmas events. Children can even work towards winning a Wildlife Watch hedgehog award for junior members of The Wildlife Trust.

Education Officer for The Wildlife Trust, Guy Belding, said: “We can’t wait to get going with this exciting programme again this year. Hundreds of families came to EcoPark for the first time last year and they were all keen to come back because it is a fantastic place to learn about wildlife and build children’s confidence.

“Outdoor learning is our speciality and we’ve been running session with schools in term time for about 15 years now, so to be able to bring this experience to the local community in the holidays thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery is brilliant.”

Bird bingo sessions will be running Thursday 18th and Friday19th February from 10am to 3pm. There is no need to book and you can turn up at any time as at EcoPark 258a Hob Moor Rd, Small Heath, B10 9HH.
