wildevents19.jpg Wild adventures

The ‘Wild’ exhibition in Durham, which celebrates the natural history of the British Isles, is going down a real storm with visitors, and in August (and beyond) they have plenty of family activities going on surrounding it.

Families have been flocking to his exhibition which gives visitors the chance to see how animals have adapted to live and thrive in the varied environments of the British Isles. One of the big draws of the show is the varied events programme, which includes family activities taking place each weekend throughout its run. These take in making birds nests and animal puppets, as well as special nature spotting events. There will be opportunities to make a bee house, learn about the life-cycle of the caterpillar, create a twit-twooing owl covered in feathers (to take away with you!), and lots more besides. There is also an events programme aimed at adults, including talks from Durham University academics and the Durham Wildlife Trust on their research into British wildlife.

Wild, until 6 October, Palace Green Library, Durham. Information on all the activities mentioned above can be found at: dur.ac.uk/palace.green
