If you go down to the woods…

Froglife will be at Nene Park Trust’s 'Woodlands Day' on Thursday 27th October – why not come and join us?

Held at Ferry Meadows Country Park, Peterborough during the half term week, it’s hoped that the event will draw plenty of families ready to be enthused about wildlife. The main attraction on the Froglife stand will be the wildlife memory board, run by My Wild Life project officer Jodie Coomber. “We’re hoping to collect childhood wildlife memories from the public and encourage them to join in with reminiscence sessions running throughout the day” says Jodie. “We’ve got some special items to remind people of their childhood adventures with wildlife and we hope parents and grandparents will bring the kids along and pass down their memories.”
Froglife will be running other activities throughout the day for young and old, including making origami frogs and snake bracelets, and playing wildlife games. Froglife experts will also be on hand with tips to make your garden pond perfect for wildlife and provide answers to your reptile and amphibian queries.
Other activities on the day include chainsaw carving, woodcrafts and demonstrations for all ages based on the theme of wood, woodlands and wildlife. There’ll also be archery, a climbing wall, ferret roulette, the CBBC Live ‘n’ Deadly trail, bushcrafts, a tree climbing demo and more!

Come along and join in the fun between 11am and 3pm. Check http://www.neneparktrust.org.uk/ for details. Free admission and free car parking, but there may be a charge for some activities.
