Chance for families to help create a home for insects at Chasewater

A free family event is offering people the chance to make a home for insects at Chasewater Country Park.

The rangers will be helping visitors to create new habitats for the sensory garden from 12noon to 5pm on Bank Holiday Monday (August 27).

Families will be given a small box to fill with grass, twigs, stones, bamboo and other material, to make a cosy home for creepy crawlies.

Ranger Ellen Williams said: “This will be a fun activity for all the family to get involved in.

“Creating insect homes is a great way to talk about how important insects are in nature. We hope lots of families will drop in on this free event.

“We want to fill the sensory garden with interesting plants, so if anyone has any perennial or bedding plants, especially if they are particularly scented or colourful, please do bring them along to the Rangers’ Station, next to the Innovation Centre.”
