Join the experts from the Museum of Zoology, Cambridge, to investigate who lives in the meadow , plus we'll make seed bombs to take home!

About this event

We have an exciting session ahead with special guests from the University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge. First, we will go sweep netting together in the meadow and record which species we find, from caterpillars to crab spiders, froghoppers to grasshoppers and much more besides. We will then choose a variety of specimens to take inside to investigate under the microscope. Connected to the projector screen, this will be a fantastic opportunity to explore these animals in greater detail, before returning them safely to their homes.

And finally, we will also be making wildflower seedbombs for you to take home. When flowering they'll feed insects and increase the biodiversity in your garden.

Why not pack a picnic and enjoy lunch here before/after your session?

Please note, Ugg Mere Court Road is closed so please plan for diversions if this affects your route. You can only access our site on Chapel Road from Upwood/Bury direction. You can come past the road closed signs on Ramsey Road and Longholme Road in Upwood.
