Explore Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trails

Looking for a winter adventure? You're invited to join Percy the Park Keeper and his animal friends in giving nature a helping hand at the places in our care.

Step into Percy's wellies for the day as his helper and join in the fun by taking part in our winter activity trails in January and February 2022.

Go on a winter wander with Percy and friends

In association with Percy the Park Keeper, we've created activity trails that'll bring the whole family closer to nature this winter. Percy loves spending time outside with his animal friends, just like our staff and volunteers who look after the gardens, parklands and countryside you love. But winter is a very busy time and he needs your help to look after nature and wildlife. 

Percy's left a special note, just for you, asking you to help him and his animal friends with some winter tasks. Your hard work will be rewarded with a prize, and you'll be able to take a selfie with Percy and his friends to share with us on social media, if you like. 

Are you ready to step into Percy's wellies and become his helper for the day? Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trails are happening at many National Trust places in January and February 2022, so find your nearest activity trail below.
