Building on the success of the 2018 Darlington Wildlife Explorers last year, we have a new exciting programme of family activities planned for 2019.
The Darlington Wildlife Explorers initiative is using expertise from the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust combined with enthusiasm and sponsorship from Darlington & Teesdale Naturalists’ Field Club. These action-packed outdoor events will encourage whole families to take part in a year of wildlife exploring, discovering and fun challenges.
The series of three events begins with Springing into Nature! on Saturday 27th April at Drinkfield Marsh with a bat walk and pond dipping planned later in the year. Full details are on our events page.
In between the events, families will be able to carry out other challenges at their own pace from details contained in an activity booklet with thirty fun and adventurous activities. As families complete the varied challenges they collect award stickers for becoming Wildlife Explorer, Wildlife Recorder and Wildlife Hero.
All for £5 per family.This covers a 32 page activity booklet, stickers and completion prize. The events are free and no booking is needed.
You can download a form or simply complete at one of the events.
