Family fun at nature day in Harleston
15:20 19 April 2012
Ladybird, or bishybarnabee if you are from Norfolk.
Nature photography, Raptor Trust display, willow sculpture, bug hunting, den building and bird ringing are just some of the attractions at a Family Nature Day on Saturday, May 5, 1pm-4pm.
Every year the event at Harleston Primary School, which shows how much fun it is to go green and enjoy the wonders of the natural world, gets better and better – and entry is free.
The theme of this – the fifth – nature day is “In the Garden”.
Professional photographer Kevin Sawford will be on hand with hints and tips about nature and wildlife photography – bring your camera.
The natural world is the theme of a Children’s Photography Competition now being run for youngsters aged 4-7 and 8-11 (email your photo to email@example.com or hand it in at school). The entries will be displayed at the nature day.
There will also be information and activities on making a bird feeder, planting, making mini gardens, composting, pond dipping, candle rolling and much more.
Refreshments will be available.
For further information, call Heather King or Emma Johnson on 01379 852561.
