Wild Wednesday – Minibeast safari

Spiders webs,

Wild Wednesdays are a way for children to explore, play, discover and enjoy Northumberland National Park.

This Wild Wednesday is called Minibeast Safari.  Come along and discover the multitude of minibeasts who live down in the grass and amongst the flowers.  Grass bugs, scorpion flies, frog hoppers and more should all be about and catchable in our sweep nets.

We are holding two Minibeast Safari sessions:

Morning 10.00am – 11.30am

Afternoon 1pm – 2.30pm

Aimed at families with children 12 years and under.

To avoid disappointment we do recommend you book your tickets in advance online as places are limited nad will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Adults go free!

The booking for the event will close before the event takes place, often on the afternoon of the last working day prior to the event.  There may still be tickets available; unless this event shows either that booking is essential or that tickets are “sold out” you may still be able to attend simply by turning up on the day.  However, do note that places are always allocated on a first come first served basis because of number restrictions.

As this is an outdoor event, please dress appropriately and wear appropriate footwear.  As the weather can change please remember to bring waterproofs and warm clothing.

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Location: Walltown Quarry Country Park (National Park car park), Greenhead, Brampton, CA8 7JD

For those wishing to use Sat-Nav please note, particularly in open country, postcodes cover a large area so whilst the postcode will get you to the right general area, you may still need to follow directions to locate the venue.
