Are you ready for a wetland adventure this summer?

Families can discover the wonder of wetlands this summer, with an adventure-packed day out at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre.

Enjoy splashing, dipping, playing, feeding, paddling and getting up-close-and-personal hand feeding some of nature’s most wonderful wildlife. But first, we need your HELP! We have lost some of our ducks and we need your help to find them. 25 giant ducks have been hidden around our wetlands and we need you to find them all and identify their names in order to win a tasty treat in our GIANT Summer Duck Hunt.


Centre Manager, Nick Brooks said: “This summer is going to be a perfect time to get outdoors with your family, have some fresh air, connect with nature and have a great day out. It is great to be able to offer events such as the duck hunt and activities like the otter talk and feeds again and we know that they are a firm favourite with our visitors.”

There are lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy, including having a go at pond dipping, taking to the water on the canoe safari, hand feeding our amazing wetland birds, watch our cheeky family of otters during their feeds, going on a wild walk adventure and take on the balance beam trail, stepping stones, den building and zip wire in our adventure playground.

Check out our top ten list of things to do on your visit at Martin Mere this summer!


After such a hard day of playing and exploring, you can relax with an ice-cream of hot drink from our Mere Side Café or kiosks, relax in the craft room whilst the kids get creative or enjoy browsing our retail shop for a souvenir.
