Boathouse visitor centre and café

Come to the visitor centre to see live close-up pictures of wildlife on the water through our interactive cameras. Exciting images of the herons nesting on Heron Island during the spring months.

Learn about the wildlife of the Mere and the wider area known as the "Meres and Mosses" through a variety of displays and by chatting to the Shropshire Wildlife staff at The Boathouse. Younger visitors can do brass rubbings of wildlife and look at natural objects under a huge microscope. There are often wildlife-inspired events for the whole family.

The Shropshire Wildlife Trust gift shop sells an interesting selection of books, cards, toys and wildlife related gifts together with Trust membership.
