Wildlife Watch picnic with a twist! Quite often when enjoying a picnic we are visited by certain creatures that have earnt themselves a bad reputation. We will be doing some fun activities based on these creatures such as wasps and ants and learning that they are not only really important within ecosystems but also not as bad as we first thought! What's more, we will be learning about how other animals in the park eat and of course, a picnic wouldn't be a picnic without a yummy snack. We will make sure we have time to fit in a biscuit or two!
We hope that you can join us on the 12th of August at 10.00am to 12.00pm at Holywells Park's Stable blocks. We hope to see you there!

We had a lovely morning in our Nature Spies session today. We found flowers and trees on our spotter sheet using clues and ID guides to help us identify the species. We then played a game of bird bingo where we learnt how to use binoculars to find the birds hiding in the trees. Finally went on a mini beast hunt finding lots of different creatures using keys to tell us what creature was what! Join us next time at the stable blocks, Holywells Park on the 11th of June, 10 -12pm for our Creepy Crawlies session. We hope to see you there!
