Families enjoyed getting up close to nature with pond dipping and bug hunts in Nailsea.
Nailsea Environment Wildlife Trust (NEWT) held its first open day at Moorend Spout Nature Reserve on Saturday.
Children took part in a tree quiz and hunted for insects before dropping pooh sticks into the Land Yeo river.
Around 70 people attended the open day including MP Liam Fox.
NEWT has made a number of improvements at the reserve, which sits between Tickenham and Nailsea, including adding a raised wooden boardwalk over the stream, two large ponds and a barn owl box.
Wildflower meadows have also been created to attract wildlife to the area.
The site is owned and managed by NEWT which took on the nature reserve in 2009.
Workdays are held on the first Saturday of each month, when volunteers undertake a range of management tasks.
