Leyburn Primary School visit Foxglove

Friday, July 13th 2018

Today we have been teaching children from Leyburn Primary School all manner of things from identifiying plants using different senses, to keystone species, and the many different trees of Foxglove.

Despite the weather the groups still found an interesting variety of bugs, beasties and underwater fauna with the grasslands of the Moorland proving most fruitful.

We've also been carrying out numerous little odd jobs around the school visit, including putting new signs up at each of the Pond Dipping platforms.

To everyone wanting to use the Pond Dipping platforms and bring their own nets please make sure to call the Reserve Managers ahead of time for tips on how to dip safely and reduce the impact dipping has on the natural environment.

Today was also Eleanor's last day of Work Experience with us, for which we're all greatly saddened.. She's put in a really good shift every day and we look forward to welcoming her back to the Reserve again in the future as a volunteer.
