During Opening Times
Come to the reserve over half term and enjoy the autumn colours on the red route (Easy Access Trail) and search for the pumpkin clues along the way. Test your knowledge of the creatures associated with Halloween by answering the fun quiz which is available from the visitor centre for only 50p.
No need to book, come and enjoy some fresh air with your family bubble. Don't forget your wellies and a pencil!
Foxglove Volunteer Group
Every Tuesday 9.30am
Foxglove Volunteer Group meet every Tuesday, all year round, whatever the weather! We do a variety of tasks which are vital to the running of our 100 acre site. Jobs can be anything from coppicing and path maintenance to tree planting and felling. No previous experience is required.
If you want to stay for a full day make sure you bring a packed lunch. Old clothes and boots or wellies are, of course, a necessity. Gloves, tools and training are provided. There are other ways to be involved as a volunteer. Surveying, monitoring and fund-raising are just a few examples of where we need help. If you have a skill and/or some time to spare, why not give us a call.
Identifying and Recording Moths
Every Wednesday 9.00am
We monitor and record the moth species on the Reserve by trapping every Tuesday evening. If you would like to help with identifying and recording the moths, or would just like to come along and see these beautiful insects, you are welcome to do so.
Bird Ringing Demonstration
Most Sundays from 10.00am
It is with regret that due to the current situation bird ringing demonstrations will not be taking place until further notice.
Come into the ringing room to see the licensed bird ringers at work. Learn how the biometrics are taken and what the data is used for. This event is weather dependant so it is advisable to phone and check ringing is on the day before.
This book has been published with the aim of enabling people visiting these, immensely important Flagship Pond Sites in North Yorkshire, to identify the dragonflies and damselflies they encounter - by reference to a simple text and photographs.
