Learn all about a wildlife world
4:00pm Sunday 26th August 2012 in News
CHILDREN can learn more about the fascinating world of wildlife in Gheluvelt Park, Worcester, on Thursday.
Minibeast hunts, tree trails and bird watching sessions will be on offer to youngsters taking part in the Wildwatchers 100 Challenge.
The challenge will aim to find 100 different species of wildlife in semi-urban environments to celebrate the Wildlife Trust’s centenary.
Debs Richardson-Bull, education officer at the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, said: “This is the first time we have taken our activities out and about and we’re really keen for lots of families to come and see what wildlife is around in their local area.
"It’s an opportunity to realise that you don’t have to go to a nature reserve to see wildlife – it really is all around us.”
Staff and volunteers will be on hand to offer advice about garden wildlife and to talk about the work of the trust.
People can turn up at the park between 10am and 3pm to take part.
Activities are free but donations are welcome.
