Exciting Education Events

Thursday, March 23rd 2017

Our Thursday team of volunteers helped with lots of jobs today (thank you all) including repairs to signage, tidying the workshop, monitoring water quality and levels, filling feeders, tidying up the coppice block

and returning to position the now-repaired window in our portacabin.

A small group also spent a morning learning about how we run some of our education events with schools, in preparation for supporting us in leading them! Pond dipping was very popular with cased caddis fly larvae being a particular excitement.

Looking for mini-beasts proved popular too, searching under the log rounds by the outdoor classroom…

…and seeing what we could find in the trees.

Jonathan also couldn’t resist having a play in the dam!

If you’re hoping to bring a school group or other group of children or young people to Foxglove please get your bookings in! If you just fancy bringing yourself or your family on an event keep an eye on our events pages – we run activities for all ages. The next, Small is Beautiful, is for adults and older children (around 8 years plus) – come and join us to look for lichen, marvel at mini-beasts and admire small-scale spectacles! Book via our events pages here.
