Event: Butterflies, bumbles

and picnics


When: Monday 6th August 2018

Times:we’ll be around 11am – 4pm, so choose a time within that and come and join us. Activities will happen as people are ready for them (see below) – latest time for new arrivals is 3pm

Where: Darley Park, Derby

How to find us: we are aiming to base ourselves in the Butterfly Garden or on the lawns hear the Café so head for the Darley Abbey Park Tearooms. For parking, try the car park on Darley St, DE22 1DX

what will you find?

 Our plan is for a relaxed day looking at the flowers and insects of the Park. There will be a bumblebee and butterfly survey to try. You can listen to wildlife stories and add your own, and help us make up some completely new ones. There will be wildlife walks and chances to draw, sketch, scribble and print the animals and plants we find.

Bring a picnic to extend your visit and enjoy open spaces, old trees and room to run and roll

Like all the Derwent Stories events,  Butterflies, bumbles and picnics is open to anyone but is planned for and structured around families including children with additional needs

The Derwent Stories project is put together with help from Umbrella, Derwentwise and Derby Parks. Stone and Water is happy to acknowledge grant aid from Foundation Derbyshire  and Derwentwise

ready for action…
