Inspiring Nature

Create some animal art, taking inspiration from the wonderful animals that call Howletts home.

Meet our Education Presenters in our refurbished Education Centre and either draw free hand or use our stencils to draw your outline and colour in. You can also make your own animal mask, or even get your face painted, so you can look just like your favourite animal.

There will be fact packed animal talks taking place at various locations around the park all weekend, so don't forget to check the information boards on arrival, or even plan your day on our website before you arrive, so you don't miss a thing!
