National Insect Weekend

Saturday 23rd - Sunday 24th June 2018

It’s National Insect Week! So we’ve got plenty ways for you to help us celebrate, all happening the weekend of 23rd June!

This weekend is all about insects, what they are, why we need them, and how to spot them! No matter what age you are, there’s something fascinating to be discovered about some of the world’s smallest creatures!

Learn all about insects from our education team. We love the smallest animals as well as the big fluffy ones, so we’re ready to answer your burning questions!

Create critter crafts at our basecamp tent. You’ll make butterfly feeders to take home and put in your own garden.

Go pond dipping with our team and take a look at what you can gather!

Learn how to make your own mini-beast mansion right in your own garden

PLUS come along to compete in The Great Insect Games! See if you can jump as far as an aphid or lift as much as an ant!

So come along and join in the creepy crawly fun!*
