Springtime Learning at Gosforth Park

17th May 2017

Educational visits are in full flow this springtime to the Society’s nature reserve at Gosforth Park. Thanks to grant funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and Natural England’s Countryside Stewardship, the Society can offer school groups a wide range of field activities, such as pond-dipping, minibeast identification, bird spotting and scavenger hunts.

Thanks to Society member naturalists for sharing their expertise and enthusiasm of the natural world to inspire the new generations of North East naturalists. Thanks also are due to all the volunteers who helped construct the Matthew Ridley hide and boardwalk – it has been well used and appreciated by recent groups!
