Children have the chance to go wild this summer at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve.

The summer holidays are now in full swing, but parents running out of fun ideas to fill the weeks ahead needn’t worry as Potteric Carr’s event programme still has plenty more exciting sessions to come.

Kids can choose from pond dipping and nature-inspired craft sessions, or for those budding wildlife-enthusiasts a butterfly expedition might be more up their street. For the very adventurous there is even a session tomorrow teaching woodland survival skills.

Kat Woolley, Education Officer for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, said: “We all remember our summer holidays as weeks of fun, running outdoors and making the most of our freedom from lessons. However, for a parent, these weeks of freedom can be a little daunting as the long days stretch ahead. So at Potteric Carr we are providing a helping hand, by offering a jam-packed events programme throughout the holidays, with several sessions running every week.

“There are events to suit every child, whether they like getting arty and creative or peering at creepy crawlies and working out how and where they live.”

All events cost £5 per child and must be booked in advance. Call 01904 659 570.
