Families will have a great day out this Easter at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre.  The theme is treasure and you can explore our treasure trails, make treasure maps and build a raft to escape from Treasure Island.

Starting Saturday 23 March to Sunday 14 April, you can also get a close encounter with nature and discover wetlands treasures as you delve into ponds to find mini-beasts in free pond dipping sessions, construct a woodland den, explore the grounds to find ducklings, goslings, chicks and cygnets and take to the water for a birds eye view of wildlife on a canoe or a guided boat. After all this action, you can enjoy a sit down whilst the children splash and dash in our new adventure play area: Rushes. You can climb, swing and balance as you play in water, have a go on our giant slide and fly across the zip wire.

New for Easter Sunday: Take part in our free giant plastic duck hunt.  Come along from 10.30am on Easter Sunday and find the hidden plastic ducks around our grounds. Each duck has a number and each number has a prize which can be anything from chocolate treats to soft toys and a meal in Mere Side Cafe.
