Get Crafty with Conservation this Summer
Native Species Activities
This summer our Conservation team is delighted to be offering some fun activities around our foot safari that you can get involved in, running w/c 28th August, there will be games, stories and crafts to help you learn all about native species and how you can help to conserve them.
The whole family can join in our games, you’ll learn why bees and flowers are so important whilst taking part in the Bee Waggle Dance before spending a moment in the life of one of our native species seeing if you can navigate through the garden, facing all sorts of obstacles!
During our Storytime, younger children will learn how forests are home to a lot of our native wildlife, and why trees and forests are incredibly important. Listen to the tale of an ant travelling through a huge tree and all the native wildlife he finds along the way.
Get your hands dirty and make your own bird and butterfly feeders out of simple items such as pinecones, sourced from Knowsley Estate, and recycled lollipop sticks and cotton wool. You’ll be able to take them home and keep them in your garden or leave them around our woodland walk.
Create a connection to local wildlife and watch as butterflies and other pollinating insects are attracted to the feeders, which will help to spread the message of why pollinators are so important to attract to our green spaces, and… you’ll have a front-row seat to all the wildlife action!
Make memories, have fun, and help your local ecosystem thrive by crafting handmade feeders.
