bluepalace19.jpg The really Wild show

Wild is a celebration of the natural history of the British Isles and it’s coming to Palace Green Library in Durham.

From high peaks and valleys to meandering rivers and powerful seas, this exhibition will show you how animals have adapted to live and thrive in the varied environments of the British Isles. As well as the chance to see species such as the red fox, red squirrel, barn owl and great crested newt up close, the gallery will be packed with family friendly games and activities, including a free gallery trail to complete. The exhibition also includes some treasures from the Palace Green Library Special Collections including 19thCentury Boys Own Annuals and hand painted illustrations of British birds by ornithologist John Selby. There will also be the chance to learn about the Durham Wildlife Trust and take part in their annual spotting programme. The exhibition will be accompanied by a varied events programme with family activities taking place each weekend throughout its run, including making birds nests and animal puppets, as well as special nature spotting events.
