LEGO brick animal trail coming to Martin Mere Wetland Centre

The Martin Mere Wetland Centre near Burscough is hosting the BRICKLIVE animal trail of LEGO models.

An outdoor LEGO exhibition will be presented at the Martin Mere Wetland Centre, with huge animal models set to be displayed around the wildlife preserve.

The trail will be in place at the centre in May and June 2020. Animals made from LEGO bricks will include a large North American River Otter, a Hawaiian Goose, a giant Kingfisher and a flamingo.

“The characters look fantastic, especially Fred the Frog which took a whopping 244 hours to make,” Nick Brooks, Martin Mere General Manager, told the Lancashire Post. “Exploring our amazing wetlands at Martin Mere to find the sculptures is great fun for all the family and a brilliant way to inspire kids to love wildlife and want to protect it for the future.”

Hour long LEGO workshops will also be available to children visiting the Martin Mere Wetland Centre, for a fee, while the exhibition is running. Activities will include a team challenge to build as many ducklings as possible and an individual challenge to make a vehicle for a wildlife ranger.

LEGO workshops will be taking place to give children the opportunity to get hands-on.
