Easter EGGstravaganza


This is an ‘Easter EGGstravaganza’ but not of the chocolate sort!

During the Easter holidays we will be celebrating our reptiles and birds by offering you the chance to learn all about these EGGCITING animals!

Complete the trail and learn some EGGSTRA-ORDINARY facts along the way to earn a token reward on completion! PLUS you’ll get the chance to learn about our historic friends and meet some recently hatched baby dinosaurs! Check out our Baby Dinosaur meet and greet timetable below!
