Come and meet the minibeasts

Join Derbyshire Wildlife Trust for a fun session sweeping and tree beating at Hammersmith Meadows, Ripley on Thursday, August 18, and then take a close look at the minibeasts you find.

This is just one of the nature-related events the Trust has organised to entertain and educate children aged six and over during the school holidays.

This free event is run in partnership with Groundwork Derby and Derbyshire and is part of the Getting Closer to Nature programme of family activities funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All.

The events are aimed at encouraging families to learn more about the natural world.

You can choose from a morning or afternoon session, 10.30am-12noon or 1pm-2.30pm.

Please book in advance. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
