Let’s befriend some birds, meet a few mammals, and introduce ourselves to insects by going wild at Kailzie!
2014 celebrates the third and final year of the Kailzie Wildlife Festival, organised by Friends of Kailzie Wildlife and funded by Scottish Natural Heritage and Scottish Borders Leader. Set in the beautiful grounds at Kailzie Gardens near Peebles, the event will take place on Sunday 4th May from 11am-5pm andÂ showcases the fantastic wildlife of the Scottish Borders through exhibits, games, activities, walks and talks.
Whether you are interested in wildlife or nature, or just looking for something fun to do with the family this May Bank Holiday, there is something for everyone at the Kailzie Wildlife Festival.
Young kids will love the wildlife games in the kids corner, nature storytelling and the cuddly toy trail. Older kids (ages 15-105) might enjoy learning about the trees and birds at Kailzie on one of our guided walks, watching a bird ringer at work or partaking in a spot of wildlife art!
With exhibitors including Red Squirrels in South of Scotland, Lothian and Borders Badger Group and RSPB, this is a great chance to learn more about the flora and fauna all around us.
If all that was not enough, we will have birds of prey, live music, retail and craft stalls and delicious local food!
The Kailzie Wildlife Festival offers great value for money with adult tickets at Â£5, children (5-15) Â£3, under 5â€™s go free, and there is even a family ticket for Â£12.
The festival is organised by the KLAWED (Kailzie Local Area Wildlife Education and Discovery) Project with Friends of Kailzie Wildlife, a registered charity. Funding for this project was obtained through Scottish Natural Heritage and Scottish Borders LEADER.
