Wild Easter Fun

Kirsty Pollard Education, News


With the freshness of Spring in full swing we have loved getting outdoors and having some wild fun during the Easter holidays. We’ve been searching for water scorpions at Low Barns Nature Reserve, creating terrific wild sculptures,  nest building at the Saltmarsh Garden, making wands and having a woodland adventure at Rainton Meadows, river dipping at Tanfield Lea, hunting for bees, rolling eggs, using leaf scopes to search for leaf miners at Herrington Country Park and so much more.

Over 100 children joined in exploring the great outdoors this Easter and we are excited about the wonderful adventures our families will continue to have with nature through the rest of the year.
