‘A sense of spring’ in ZWIN

During the crocus holiday, from Saturday 22 February to Sunday 1 March, the Province of West Flanders organizes extra activities in the Zwin Nature Park in Knokke-Heist.

All activities are dedicated to the coming spring. The Zwin Nature Park is launching a number of novelties: children can present themselves as a bird of the Zwin for the first time this year. And in the context of the temporary exhibition “The Zwin in the Comic” there are signing sessions and guided tours.

Daily activities
Between 10.30 am and 4.30 pm visitors can visit the various cabins on the trail. In the feeding hut a guide of the Zwin explains how birds are best fed in the spring. In the ring hut visitors learn about different types of nest boxes and in the lab hut they examine spores and seeds themselves. In the viewing hut a Zwingids explains the birds on and around the breeding island. The two new Swarovski Vista viewers are waiting on the panorama tower to offer all visitors a unique view.
Extra entertainment is also provided for children: in the visitor center they can listen to a stork story and in the viewing center they can fully enjoy themselves and completely show off as a Zwinvogel, such as a avocet, a finch or a little owl.

The activities are included in the entrance fee.
