Double Eco-club

Tuesday, June 30th 2009

It was a very busy weekend which saw not one but two sessions of our Eco-club. Along with Northallerton Wildlife Trust who brought 10 children from their Watch! group there were a lot of children on site. The Watch! group did some pond-dipping whilst Eco-club surveyed the orchids and dissected a buttercup to find out about flower parts.

On Sunday there were another group of people who came with 13 children to have a pond-dipping session.

Also Wensleydale Winers and Diners came along for a walk.

A busy time indeed for Beryl and Elizabeth who volunteered to work at the reserve this weekend.

Working on the new workshop

Today the work continued on our new workshop. You can see here the work to lay in the new cables for the electricity. This work will be continuing all week. By Friday everything should be finished. Hurrah!
