Families can go wild at free fun day!
A free fun day in the Peak District National Park next month will give families a chance to experience and find out more about wildlife and nature.
The event takes place on Friday 2 June from noon at Losehill Hall, the Peak District National Park Authority’s Centre for Environmental Learning. The centre, off the A6187 between Castleton and Hope, is well placed for public transport and there will be free parking on the day.
The event is part of National Wildlife Week and it is being staged in partnership with the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
There will be a host of hands-on activities for people of all ages, including:
· Stream dipping
· Wildlife Safari
· Nature walks
· Art, photography and mask making activities.
Refreshments will also be available.
The event builds on a similar open day at Losehill Hall last year, which attracted hundreds of local people and visitors.
National Park Authority Head of Environmental Education, Richard Campen, said: “The wildlife in the Peak District National Park is incredibly rich and diverse. This event will be a great way for people of all ages to take part in some fun activities and find out a bit more about the local wildlife at the same time.”
There is no need to book for the event – people can just turn up on the day and the activities will take place between noon and 5pm. For more information contact Losehill Hall on 01433 620373.
