93 days to go to National Insect Week
Saturday, June 25, 2016 - 11:00 to 17:00
Our annual Wildlife Day will be back on Sunday 26th June at 11:00. Once again it will be run in conjunction with National Insect Week and we will have a timetable of activities throughout the day for all the family.
Every year Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens hosts a wildlife day to enthuse people about the wildlife in their gardens and provide them with practical tips on how to share even the smallest of spaces with animals, birds and insects. The day is a celebration of British wildlife, where you can see practical demonstrations of bird ringing and moth-trapping. You will also be able to join experts in the garden as they take you on identification walks to find some of the secret wildlife.
Admission is £5 for adults and £1 for children (5-16)
The event is still at the planning stage, but we can already confirm the following activities: Watch this space as we add more details of events.
