A Wild Day In: Nature Roadshow
RAMM is joining with the RSPB to celebrate 40 years of giving nature a home in Exeter.
Bring along your wildlife specimens, photos and sounds to be identified by a range of experts. With British wildlife collections from RAMM’s stores on show and activities including wildlife art demonstrations, poetry readings and beetle drives, there’s something for everyone. There will also be a chance to participate in the national Big Draw and Family Arts Festival by adding your bird drawing to our Skycape over the cafe. A must for anyone passionate about nature.

Unfortunately TV presenter Nick Baker can no longer attend “I’m really sorry I can’t be with you there – I was really looking forward to being with all the experts, seeing you, looking at your objects and answering your questions; all in my favourite museum. I’m afraid I’m now unable to attend (nature calls!) but I know it will still be a fantastic day, after all, it’s all about YOU and your questions and I know the brilliant experts on hand will provide a fun and informative day. Have a great time, everyone and get out there!”
