Ready to ReWild

Saturday 28 May, 9am – 1pm

Rewild. Restore.Reconnect.

Join us at the airport with all the family this half term for a special environment-focused event with home-grown conservation charity Explorers Against Extinction.

The open morning, hosted in a hangar on the edge of the airfield by private charter airline, SaxonAir, is an opportunity to find out more about aviation’s role in conservation, and to see what aviation’s sustainable future might look like.

Find out about the Norwich Airport bees and ‘throw and grow’ in the SaxonAir pollinator garden, learn about the role of anti-poaching dogs, and their relationship with SaxonAir, have a go in the simulator, sit in a helicopter, see a 1930s Tiger Moth and a range of cutting-edge electric vehicles including a Porsche Taycan.

Hear from expert guests on how to get involved in rewilding right here in Norfolk, and enjoy the many fun attractions and exhibits.
