Go wild this action-packed summer and be a Wetland Explorers in Llanelli with exciting Wetland Explorer challenges throughout the holidays!

Grab your free logbook from Wetland Explorers HQ (by the Water Lab) and head out into the wild for some unforgettable experiences.

Join an expert to rifle under rotten logs, leaves and soil to uncover a minibeast metropolis, and discover aquatic creatures with incredible stories in our pond-dipping sessions. Then, build a den and let off steam in the Explore play area before meeting our flamingos and their adorable chicks at our daily talk.

You can also join our Wetland Rangers on an expedition around the reserve to look for wildlife and see the natural world in a new light.

Complete your logbook by collecting stamps from all of these great activities:
