Pull on your boots and discover the magic of our wetlands this autumn with Quentin Blake's illustrations as your guide.
Quentin says "Visitors will be walking with me, and I like to think of myself walking with them. I shan't mind if I get my feet wet."
Pick up one of our Drawn to Water illustrated trails and explore our seasonal natural highlights, from quiet spots with breathtaking views to close up wildlife encounters.
Spend time with friends and family and engage your senses as you experience uplifting autumnal colours, the crunch of leaves underfoot and the sounds of migrating birds.
Unlock your creativity and explore wetland nature through our range of art and illustration activities for all ages and abilities, inspired by Quentin Blake's wonderfully distinctive drawings. And if, like Quentin, you're inspired by wetlands, why not enter our national art competition to win a unique print?
For an in-depth look at artworks from Quentin Blake's personal archive, don't miss our Drawn to Water exhibition, running from October 2023 to February 2024. Discover Quentin's love for wetlands and wildlife through more than 50 nature-inspired illustrations.
