The CRT would like to invite you behind the scenes at Lark Rise Farm on Friday 4th August as part of National Countryside Week. The Lark Rise Discovery Day will focus very much on encouraging people to engage with the countryside and educating attendees on the importance of Wildlife Friendly farming. Coinciding with Butterfly Conservation’s Big Butterfly Count, join wildlife expert Dr Vince Lea and other CRT volunteers, by getting involved in butterfly activities and surveys across the farm. We will help you to identify each species and provide gardening tips to aid Butterflies and habitat creation. You will also be able to take part in other activities such as Bird Box making, Willow Basket weaving and others which will be confirmed shortly.
Following an afternoon embracing wildlife and getting a taste of conservation on Lark Rise Farm, we will be finishing off the day with a Hog roast (type of meat tbc!), locally made cider and other refreshments for the kids and the non-cider fans!
The event will be free of charge and will run from 11am until 6pm.
