That time of year has come again; the sky is blue, the grass is green and there is loads of wildlife to be seen – if you know where to look, that is. And, rather conveniently, staff at the Natural History Museum are stepping in to lend a helping hand. In one big buggy bonanza, Saturday’s Big Nature Day will include worm charming, pond dipping and ladybird hunts. For those who wish to get as close to nature as possible there will even be the chance to dress up as a bee in a museum display. With tree trails, puppet shows, face painting, (and experts at the ready to explain the science behind collecting plants and animals), it’s bound to be the bee’s knees. Kitty Knowles
The Big Nature Day is free, and will take place on July 13 at the Natural History Museum’s Darwin Centre and Wildlife Garden, between 11am – 5pm.
