The work of the AONB Partnership aims to conserve and enhance this extraordinary place now and for the future.
Calling all dads
June 15th, 2015
To celebrate the occasion on Sunday 21 June, all dads visiting the the RSPB Leighton Moss reserve at Silverdale will gain free entry to the site, as well as a complementary cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee and a freshly-made scone in the reserve’s award-winning café.
With signs of summer in the air, RSPB Leighton Moss is the ideal place for a family visit on Father’s Day. As the largest reedbed in North West England, there is plenty to do, from exploring the family nature trails to discovering the wide variety of wildlife which makes its home at the reserve.
Anya Kuliszewski, Visitor Experience Intern at RSPB Leighton Moss and Morecambe Bay nature reserve, said: “Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to treat your dad like a king and enjoy the day together, so why not head to Leighton Moss. The reserve always has something going on and with the wildlife ranging from birds to bugs, and plenty more in between, there’s lots of fascinating creatures to discover.
“After a trip out on the reserve, there is nothing better than popping back to the visitor centre for a look around the shop or enjoying a treat in the café. The scones are delicious, so all dads visiting on Father’s Day are certainly in for a tasty treat.”
Visitors will also have the opportunity to enjoy getting even closer to nature through a lens, during the binocular and telescope open weekend on 20 and 21 June, from 10 am-4 pm. Staff at the reserve will be offering people the chance to try a wide range of binoculars and telescopes outdoors, while providing friendly, impartial and hands-on advice.
