Come outside to enjoy the last throws of winter with our family activities. Take a walk at night, learn how to survive in the wild, or track the animals that call Sheringham Park their home.

Tracker Trail

Daily Saturday 15 – Sunday 23 February, 10am – 4.15pm

Drop in any day during the February half term to find out how to spot the tell-tale signs animals leave behind (tracks, feeding signs and poo!) with a fun family quiz trail. Solve the clues to win a prize! Suitable for all ages. 

£2.50 per trail.

 

Wild Animal Tracking

Monday 17 February and Tuesday 18 February, 10.30am–12.30pm

Foxes, badgers and deer live in the Park but are seldom seen. Learn how to read the signs animals leave behind and make a plastercast print.  We will then take a walk off the beaten track to look for animal signs – footprints, feeding signs and poo!  Finally we’ll check our camera trap to see animal activity from the night before.

Children £6 Accompanying adults £4.

Night Hike - sorry, sold out!

Monday 17 February, 5pm-7.30pm

Join us at sunset to see what stirring as night falls. Muntjac and Roe Deer come out of hiding and the stars can be spectacular on a clear night. Going on a nature walk at night and Go stargazing are two of the 50 things to do before you’re 11 and ¾ !
