About

Spring has arrived in Cheddar Gorge; the flowers are blooming and the wildlife is thriving!

Running during the local May school half term, from 25th May – 2nd June 2024. We're inviting everyone to go wild for wildlife and join us for a fun and informative week where you'll learn about the wonderful wildlife that make the gorge their home.

The talks will be brought to life by our Cheddar team who love to spread the word about the Wildlife Wonders of Cheddar Gorge.

There will be a series of daily interactive talks taking place in the Museum of Prehistory Garden. We'll be shining the spotlight on the Soay sheep and goats who roam the cliffs, the bats who live deep within our caves, the nocturnal dormouse and the birds who soar high above the gorge.

You'll learn how all wildlife is important to our landscape and ecosystem as well as how we can all help to conserve these precious species for future generations.

Join 'How To' sessions where our team will demonstrate how to make a bird feeder from upcycled household items. At the end of each session, everyone will receive an instruction pack of how to make their own feeder at home.

Special pop-up events will run on selected days throughout the week.

This event is included with your day ticket that gives you access to six great attractions including newly opened Yeo's Journey which uses state-of-the-art animation, colour, lighting and sound projected against the cave walls to tell the captivating story of how they were formed and evolved through the 'power of water'.
