Happy Holidays!

Looking for somewhere to go with the family at half term, why not explore and discover at Foxglove and take part in the Pumpkin Trail? 

From now until the 31st October come along and enjoy the autumn colours on the red route (Easy Access Trail) and search for the pumpkin clues along the way. Test your knowledge of the creatures associated with Halloween by answering the fun quiz which is available from the visitor centre for only 50p.

No need to book, come and enjoy some fresh air with your family bubble. Don't forget your wellies and a pencil! Check your answers at the Field Centre and claim a small prize!

Thank you to the Community Champion at Tescos of Catterick Garrison for donating the pumpkins and to the Member Pioneer at the Co-op in Leyburn for giving sweets for prizes.

Check out the events page to find out what else is on over half term. Wednesday 27th October is Wildlife Activity Day; there will be lots of hands - on craft activities for all ages. Make bird feeders, mini bug hotels, seed bombs. Craft a hedgehog or spider or bee from different materials to take away too. This is a drop in session so booking is not required. Donations towards costs of materials would be appreciated on the day.

There ares till places available on the pumpkin carving sessions too - booking is essential for these!

Did you know that there are lots of local homemade gifts available to buy in the Field centre? We currently stock 3 types of local honey, many beeswax products, embroidered stockings, homemade jewellery as well as Natural History books and guides. Beat the crowds and do some Christmas shopping at the reserve!
