The popular adventure park is keen on conservation and supporting the environment having planted more than 5,000 trees within the grounds last year.
Children were invited to attend a series of conservation days in 2012 and this month the park is staging its first conservation weekend of the year on February 9 and 10.
Puxton needs customers to offer their support and get involved by adding their own touch to the conservation area.
Puxton managing director, Alistair Mead, said "It is great to get children involved in conservation and what better way than to plant their own trees and watch them grow over the years.
"We've got some big plans for the land and we need your help to make this possible.
"Do you think you could help us get the conservation area smiling again to attract more wildlife to Puxton Park?"
The day will involve children meeting farmer Mark Slade to plant various native trees, shrubs and bulbs.
Youngsters will also be given their own pots to plant seeds and take home with them at the end of the day.
Set in the beautiful Somerset countryside the 70-acre family park is one of the largest visitor attractions in the region offering a pet village, farm animals and a falconry centre.
For play there is an indoor three-storey play barn, outdoor play with an inflatable bouncy pillow, giant castle, Puxton Little Farmers, Adrenalin Antics, tractor track, maze, adventure course, boating lake, and JCB sand pit.
There is also the award winning Meadows restaurant and a farm shop selling local produce including Somerset grown vegetables, local cheeses and meats from award winning Gerald David Butchers.
