Canal Wildlife

Living havens for wildlife

Our first display celebrates the role canals play in providing havens for birds, insects, plants and fish.

You can sit and watch an inspiring film and find out more about what to look for next time you take a walk or cycle ride along your local canal.

This bright and attractive display is a great way to introduce children to the wildlife around them and to encourage them to keep their eyes open!
