Caring for birds all year round is important but they do need an extra helping hand in the Winter and Spring months, offering food and shelter is a great starting point. Families are invited to join Wharton Park Rangers during February half term to build and create their own bird box and bird feeder. All materials will be provided during the workshop and the Park Rangers will support families to build the pieces providing all tools required. Families can then take the finished items home to be placed in their own garden or if they wish to they can donate the finished bird box to Wharton Park which will be installed in the park grounds on the day. During the session families will learn about the birds that visit Wharton Park, what they like to eat and advice on choosing the best location for a bird box and feeder.  

Spaces are limited to one family per time slot with a maximum of six people, the workshop will take place outdoors in our Education Yard. To book a ticket please Contact the park providing your full name, contact number and a member of staff will contact you to confirm your booking and take payment over the telephone. Please note customers will only be contacted during office hours 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday.
