Welcome to the wonderful world of beetles, dragonflies, butterflies, spiders and other creepy crawlies. We will be exploring pond, meadow and woodland in search of these mini-monsters and discovering fascinating facts about these creatures.

You will be able to make an insect home for your garden and find out how to make habitats for our tiny friends to thrive. A wild time for everyone! 

Please bring plenty to drink if it’s a warm day (fingers crossed!).
