We are excited to reveal an exclusive, brand- new event at Newport Wetlands introducing a story written and illustrated especially for us by local artist Isabel Benavides. The book entitled Yogi Duck and the Little Chick, shares the adventures of a little moorhen chick and we will bring this to life in a storytelling event. As well as getting to know some fabulous characters, the story’s theme is one of mindfulness and calm… immersing ourselves in the wonderful nature around us.
Suitable for younger children we will unveil the story on a quiet area of the reserve and then have fun doing some activities that go along with the book.
After the event why not head out for a walk and see if you can spot any of the characters from the book. Or stop in the café for lunch where you may see a real- life Yogi Duck or Little Chick on the pond!
The event will be an hour in length, each child’s ticket includes a free accompanying adult. Extra adults tickets can be purchased separately. Sorry no dogs on this event. There is a car park charge of £4 (free to RSPB members) which can be purchased on the day.
