Birdworld is delighted to announce its first ever Brownie Badge Day for Brownie Groups! The event, which is new for 2017 will be packed full of fun and offer all attending Brownies the chance to work towards a number of different badges throughout the day. Whilst exploring Birdworld, the girls will be given the chance to learn interesting facts and attend fascinating talks about topics such as conservation work, endangered species, animal care and of course the amazing birds, underwater life and farm animals that live within Birdworld’s 26-acre park.
For the day, we will provide a brand new ‘Scrapbook Trail’ only available to Brownies, which will encourage the girls to find out about some of the animals that live at Birdworld, including a range of threatened species in the park. The Birdworld Education team will also make a special presentation available during the day in our Discovery Theatre.
Additionally, down at the Jenny Wren Farm the team will be talking about domestic pets and their care!
Early booking strongly recommended!
Please note, Birdworld does not provide badges.
