For May half term Severn Valley Country Park be helping their younger visitors get closer to nature.

On Wednesday 27th May, the rangers will be making a wildlife hotel. The hotel or stack will be made from materials found around the park and will help replicate the natural features insects love to call home. The stack will be assembled to provide lots of nooks and crannies for insects and small mammals to crawl into. Once the stack is completed, it will remain in the woods at Hall Close Coppice, meaning everyone will be able to watch the fascinating behaviour of the little creatures up close whenever they visit the park.

On Friday 29th May, visitors will be able to join the rangers for a fun scavenger hunt. Whilst exploring the park, the children will be asked to find a series of items including a y-shaped stick, a smooth pebble and a blade of grass you can play a tune on!
