RSPB Wild Day Out

As part of the Edinburgh Science Festival, RSPB Scotland and Historic Scotland will be running the Wild Day Out event for a third year running.

The free family-friendly event is being held at the Holyrood Park Education Centre on Saturday 13 April 2019, from 10am to 4pm.

Join RSPB Scotland and Historic Scotland for a day of discovery as you learn more about the rugged landscape and the amazing wildlife living in the heart of Edinburgh: with face painting, worm charming, minibeast hunts, a nature science lab and lots of other hands-on activities.

Run as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival, experts will be on hand to help you get up close with nature and to show you how every member of the family can help the natural world in your own back garden.
