Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre is a great place for family adventures. Try your hand at pond dipping, minibeast hunting, den building or a whole host of other free activities. Open all year and run by the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre is a green oasis in the heart of Grangemouth.
Managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust, Jupiter is an excellent example of how ex-industrial wasteland can be transformed in to a thriving habitat for wildlife.
Come and explore for yourself by trying out some of the many free activities on offer - try your hand at pond dipping, minibeats hunting, bird watching or build a shelter in the woods. Why not make a day of it by bringing a picnic!
There's also a year round programme of Ranger-led events - contact us directly for more information.
Entry is free.
