We had a lovely day during our Creepy Crawlies session. We found lots of pond life such as backswimmers, flatworms, leeches, caddisfly larvae, freshwater shrimp and even tadpoles and fish! We then made miniature rafts and successfully got them to float! If you'd like to see what wildlife Holywells park and activities Ipswich Wildlife Watch has to offer, then why not join us next time, at the stable blocks, 9th of July 10-12pm to find out!
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!
Thank you to all those who braved the rain and helped us with our Just Bee Cause event yesterday. The rain couldn't dampen our spirits and we got to work seed bombing our plots and planting 40 bee friendly, nectar rich plants. We then got creative making bird scarers to keep Holywells park's birds away from our wildflower seeds! Join us for our next session on the 14th of May at the Stable block, Holywells Park for our Nature Spies session, 10-12pm. We hope to see you there.
Please join us next month on Saturday April 9 from 10am to 12pm at the Stable Block, Holywells Park where we will be creating a wildflower patch in the park to create much needed food and shelter for bees.
Since 1900 the UK has lost 20 species of bee and since 1945 we have lost 97% of wildflower rich meadows, with this decline still happening at an alarming rate.
Sessions are £2 per child and accompanying adults are free. We hope to see you there.
We were very busy last week in our bumblebee themed session, we went on a bumblebee trail finding all 12 species of UK bumblebees and getting a few chocolate treats for our hard work! We then got to work making a bee hotel for solitary bees and other mini beasts. Join us next time on Saturday the 9th of April, where we will be planting a wildflower meadow for the park's wildlife. Meet us outside the Stable blocks, 10am - 12pm. We hope to see you there.
