Forthcoming Tuesdays in South Derbyshire will be wild thanks to a busy school holiday summer holiday schedule of events.
South Derbyshire District Council’s environmental education team, based at Rosliston Forestry Centre, in Burton Road, has revealed its family explorer Wildlife Watch programme for 2017 will be on Tuesdays between 2pm and 4pm.
Search for creatures on "Minibeast Safari" on August 8 when one of the habitats ripe for investigation will be the new wildflower meadows being created as part of the Wildflower and Hedgerow Explores project, funded by the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Towards the end of the school break in South Derbyshire children and adults are welcome to discover "Beautiful Butterflies" on August 15 and go hunting on a "Scavenger Hunt" on August 29.
No booking is required for each session, however visitors are urged to get to the on-site classroom between 2pm and 3pm to find out more.
All activities are suitable for those aged four to 12-years-old. Activities cost £2.50 per child or per set of equipment depending on the activity. Children must be supervised by an adult who should be prepared to help them with the activities.
