A home for wildlife: February half-term

February 10, 2011

Tuesday 22 – Friday 25 February
1pm – 3pm

We aim to make the Garden a haven for wildlife – a home for  birds to feed and make their nests, and for bees, butterflies and other insects to visit frequently. Birch, alder, hawthorn and field maple, are just some of the trees that were planted last year to create an inviting place for nature.

So why not come along in the February half-term holidays and help get the Garden ready for Spring? We’ll be building a skyscraper hotel for all kinds of insects, designing resting places for butterflies and making breakfast bars for birds.

The free workshops will take place Tuesday to Friday 1-3pm and are suitable for children aged 5 – 12. Children should be accompanied by an adult.

It may be nearly Spring, but dress up warmly!
