Event: Butterflies, bumbles
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
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
