A new postcard adventure trail designed by children’s illustrator Ella Beech launches on Saturday, July 20 as part of activities planned to offer a summer of wonder for all who explore the wetlands.

The school summer holidays are here and families looking for a fresh adventure that will deepen their connection with nature can enjoy a new postcard adventure trail launching on Saturday, July 20 at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre The trail is one of many activities planned to offer a summer of wonder for all exploring the wetlands.

Giant postcards, designed by children’s illustrator Ella Beech, share personal messages from nine animals who live in wetland habitats around the world. Dotted across the 62-hectare wetland centre, those on the adventure trail at WWT Arundel use a trail map to find the postcards and discover new wetlands and the animals that thrive within them.
