Lyndon Visitor Centre, home to our iconic Ospreys, has had an exciting makeover, thanks to generous funding from the Augean Community Fund.
During the last lockdown, we worked with Leicester based arts group Graffwerk to update the centre, making it more interactive and engaging for visitors. Graffwerk created custom wildlife murals, which depict some of the wonderful species that can be found at Rutland Water Nature Reserve. We also installed new interpretation panels and updated the layout of the centre.
Laura Brady, Lyndon Visitor Centre Manager tells us more:
“We were so excited to have the chance to collaborate with Graffwerk, their work is amazing and what they have created for the centre is brilliant. When you come to visit us, you might just spot our cheeky water vole chopping his grass as you walk to the front door, and be sure to look up as you leave for our woodland walk to get the most amazing view of our spectacular painted barn owl on the gable end of the building!
For those with a good eye, be sure to take a stroll to Teal Hide, our educational and family hide, and pay a visit to our larger than life otter! In addition, Teal hide has had the most unbelievable makeover, with enormous animals decorating the inside of the hide!"
