Chance to explore north Norfolk nature with new app
Developed exclusively for visitors to Kelling Heath by Affinity New Media, the App features two trails which can be completed on foot or by bike, enabling families to discover more about the park’s rare heathland and woodland environments. Explorers can download the app before visiting or at the park and can choose between the Enchanted Wild Wood trail and the Golden Trail to earn explorer badges and a prize.
Following the maps and way markers, families can work together to locate special codes which, when typed into the App, unlock questions about the Kelling Heath estate, its wildlife and the local countryside. A correct answer reveals more information about the subject, alongside pictures and audio recordings of some of the wildlife. Once adventurers have completed the trail and earned their explorer badges via the app they can collect their prize - an enamel Kelling Heath badge.
Michael Timewell, Director of Blue Sky Leisure, said: “At Kelling Heath we work hard to conserve the unique natural environment, and we think it’s important to enable visitors to find out more. We wanted to use smartphone technology to encourage visitors to get out and about and learn more about the nature right on their doorstep.
“The Explorer App is an exciting new addition to our range of guided and self guided walks and the family wildlife activities, such as pond dipping, moth trapping, interactive falconry displays and nature crafts.”
The new Kelling Heath Explorer App can be enjoyed by all ages, although Kelling Heath recommends an adult should always accompany children under 16 years old. The app is available now for download from Apple’s app store – just search Kelling Heath.
