Love Your Zoo Week - Build a Butterfly Feeder

Build a Butterfly Feeder and be a Part of a Nationwide Survey.

Calling all wannabe conservationists! Butterfly feeders attract and feed butterflies and will also provide you with a great amount of enjoyment as your garden becomes a haven for colourful insects! So, why not join us in the Park on Wednesday 31st May, to construct your own feeding station to take home.

The feeders are a great way to encourage your children to venture out and to teach them about the different species we have in the UK.  A worksheet will also be available for participants to be a part of a nationwide survey to record the different varieties they find in their garden.

This activity costs £5 per feeder to build and is a great way to get involved as you assist, develop and help to maintain vital butterfly habitats. To take part, meet us from 10.30am in Treasured Toys.

Event: Build your own Butterfly Feeder

Date: Wed, 31st May

Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm

Where: Treasured Toys

Cost: £5 per butterfly feeder

Normal Park admission charges apply
