Skelton Grange Environment Centre is holding an open day to celebrate improvement work completed by the site’s Conservation Volunteers group.
The volunteers have created a new vegetable garden, a barefoot trail, meadows areas, and installed bee hives and bird boxes.
The open day at the Stourton nature reserve invites outdoors lovers to visit the centre on Saturday October 8 as part of the Conservation Volunteers’ Big Green Weekend.
The event is an opportunity for visitors to find out what Skelton Grange has to offer and to get close to nature through a range of family activities.
There will be circus skills, pond dipping, woodcraft, bushcraft skills, campfire cooking, spoon carving, bike maintenance workshops, bee keeping, and minibeast hunting.
Ralph Walker, administrator at Skelton Grange Environment Centre, said: “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing team of volunteers for all the hard work they have put into the project over the past year.
“We’ve been tremendously busy with new developments across the site and we’d like to invite the public to come and see what we’ve been up to and find out a little more about the Conservation Volunteers’ charitable work.
“If you can’t make it for the open day, you can get involved by attending a training course, joining in as a volunteer, booking a child onto one of our very popular school holiday events or, if you have nerves of steel, you could even book a group onto our special Zombie Adventure nights running from October 27.”
The Skelton Grange Open Day will run from 11am until 4pm.
