Bristol's Festival of Nature is to take to the water this summer, giving wildlife-lovers the chance to go on an adventure along the River Avon

For the first time in its 14-year history, the festival has been expanded to include the city's waterscapes as part of a programme. Participants will be allowed to take a journey along the river, in the process uncovering the delights of the Avon and its many inhabitants.

The two-week event will start with a Bristol celebration on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June and will feature a host of interactive exhibits and activities from organisations such as the BBC and National Trust.

People will also get to find out more about a river's journey as it travels from source to the sea, passing through woodland, jungle and wetlands on the way.

The festival is extending this year to allow people to discover and enjoy the natural world with an imaginative programme which will feature hands-on activities, workshops, performances, celebrity talks and much more!
