Celebrate spring with the team at RSPB Coombes Valley nature reserve, near Leek, as they host a range of egg-citing events throughout the Easter holidays.

The popular ‘scrambled eggs’ Easter trail has returned to Coombes. The Easter Bunny’s naughty friend has muddled up all the wildlife eggs from their mums again. This year the bunnies have been busier than ever and only the best explorers will be able to find all the eggs along our woodland trail, unscramble them and match them up with their wild mums.

Participants in the egg hunt can enjoy a stroll through our beautiful spring woodlands, stopping along the way to build a den, explore the fairy village or make a potion in the mud kitchen. There will be an Easter treat waiting for the successful egg hunters at the end!

For eggy madness join us every day from Friday 25 March to Sunday 10 April, 10am – 4pm. The self-guided trail will cost £4 per answer sheet with 20% off for RSPB members.

The egg hunt isn’t the only activity families can enjoy at RSPB Coombes Valley over Easter. On Wednesday 6 April, parents and children from the local area can take part in the first Wild Wednesday of the year and help build a bug skyscraper for the reserve. Participants can also make their own mini bug bungalow to take home with them and go on a bug hunt to discover what insects can be found at Coombes.

Wild Wednesday costs £5 per child, with 20% off for RSPB members. No need to book, just turn up and join in.
