VISITORS to RHS Garden Harlow Carr at Harrogate are being invited to explore the land that time forgot this summer.
The garden has a Jurassic theme with a series of displays and events being staged from Saturday July 21.
There will be giant willow sculptures including a stegosaurus, pterodactyl and diplodocus
Families can embark on a Jurassic journey around the garden on a daily garden trail and discover habitats rich in Jurassic plants like ferns and monkey puzzle trees.
Visitors will be greeted by a seven-foot-tall willow stegosaurus made by North Yorkshire-based willow sculptors from Dragon Willow.
Budding palaeontologists can dress up as explorers and take part in a fossil dig to find dinosaur teeth, bones and claws.
A ‘Jurassic Timeline’ will take visitors from the Jurassic period to the modern day - with facts and figures about the earth, plants and animals en route.
And visitors will be encouraged to take a selfie in a climb-in dinosaur egg.
There will be birds-of-prey flying displays designed to explain the link between birds and dinosaurs as well as hands-on craft activities including sourdough dinosaur bone and dinosaur egg making workshops and storytelling with the garden detectives.
Liz Thwaite, Head of RHS Garden Harlow Carr said: “Our Jurassic theme is designed to encourage families to discover, learn, grow and most of all, have fun together.
“The garden will be transformed into a Jurassic playground with willow dino sculptures and lots of opportunities to make and do. It promises to be truly roar-some.”
