ABOUT:

Everyone loves butterflies, but did you know that you can put feeders out for them just like you can for birds? Of course, you can attract butterflies by planting the right flowering plants in your garden, but why not give them an extra treat by making a special feeder.

We'll also be creating beautiful picture frames from natural materials, and finding out what's swimming beneath the surface of the ponds in our pond dipping sessions.

Most of our activities take place indoors or under cover, so no need to worry if there's a sudden summer shower!
