Martin Mere offers free kids’ tickets during teacher strike

Martin Mere Wetland Centre has announced that kids can go free during the planned teacher strike on Tuesday 28 February.

Families with children aged up to 16 are invited to the centre to enjoy a full day of wetland adventures and meet wetland stars such as adorable otters, flamboyant flamingos and some of the world’s most eye-catching ducks, geese and swans.

Nick Brooks, Centre Manager at Martin Mere, said, “We are inviting families to come and enjoy a whole day of fun at our centre. As you venture around our wetlands, you’ll learn more about the importance of wetlands and the species that call them home.

“You can also join us in our pond zone from 13:30 until 15:00 for our pond dipping session. Dip for nymphs, water boatmen and water fleas and speak to our friendly volunteers to find out more about the creatures you find under the water! You can also learn all about migratory species at our daily wild bird feed with a warden.”

Additionally, families can pick up their free Lego trail card and discover 15 sculptures that have been exclusively designed for WWT.

The sculptures showcase beautiful wetland animals, including a large North American river otter, Hawaiian goose, kingfisher, frog, water vole and more.

Over 250,000 Lego bricks were used to make the wetland characters, which took over 1,500 hours to make.

Free tickets will be available at the centre with no pre-booking required – just show up at the centre on Tuesday 28 February. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult. One adult ticket costs £15.95. To find out more about WWT Martin Mere, visit their website
