Summer Season Adventure Pass

Sign your family up for a wild summer! Enjoy our Island's wildlife this summer with family favourites like rock pooling, pond dipping, bug hunting and more!

Isn’t nature just amazing? And there are some incredible species living just on our doorsteps on the Island, why not find out more?

Manx Wildlife Trust runs a series of events for children over the summer to engage budding naturalists - get nose to nose with our wildlife and the chance to meet like minded friends. Over the summer holiday period we will be tracking down lizards, crawling after bugs, delving into the depths of rock pools and creating secret dens amongst other activities. In total there will be 10 events held and with a limited number on sale, we create quality time for your child and give confidence to children daunted by crowds. Check out our What's On Page to see the events available - look for the Hedgehog Award Badge.

You can join in the scheme by buying a ticket below for just £10 or why not enrol your child as a Wildlife Watch Member for £15? Family and Wildlife Watch Members receive 3 WATCH magazines packed with fascinating wildlife facts and activities to do as well as e-newsletters about the Manx wildlife for an entire year!

At each event there will be all the equipment you need to track down the wildlife, plus specialist knowledge to help you identify creatures and plants and they will be at carefully chosen sites to showcase our fabulous wildlife. So do you fancy being barking mad with trees, exploring the secrets of sandy shores, tracking down spiders who make mazes or even splashing about in a stream? Then come and join us. 

The Events

The events will be held at fantastic local wildlife rich sites located all around the Island from Ayres all the way down to Port Erin. So make 2017 the year to get out and about on the Island and become a little wild with your family!*

*Please note that all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult, with a ratio of at least one adult per five children.
