Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group (YACWAG) saw scores of people flock to Stowey Reserve to celebrate the organisation’s 20th anniversary event.
Families gathered to get stuck into nature-based activities put on by the charity, where more than 100 people took part in the fun.
Youngsters got a close look at water wildlife, dissected owl pellets and created sculptures from the bones of voles, mice and shrews to take home as a souvenir.
Others made badges from natural materials at the Nature As Your Neighbour get-together on Bank Holiday Monday.
Chairman of YACWAG Tony Moulin said: "It was a brilliant day and we were so pleased to see so many young faces eager to learn about their natural environment.
