If you are looking for something to entertain the family during half term why not explore Hyndburn's countryside and wildlife.
The PROSPECTS Foundation has organised three wild and wonderful events during the school holidays, which coincides with National Family Week.
The first event on Wednesday, June 2, from 1pm to approximately 3pm, is pond dipping at Arden Hall, where you can see what beasties are to be found in the local stream. Places need to be booked and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
Second up on Wednesday, June 2, from 6pm until 8pm, is the Lancashire Wildlife Trust, who will be helping volunteers to carry out a wildlife survey of the Millennium Baby Woodland in Altham. This will be a great chance to learn more about woodlands and associated trees, flowers and shrubs. Meet at the entrance gate next to United Utilities Martholme depot on Burnley Road, Altham.
The third event will be held on Thursday, June 3, with a tour around the Great Harwood Nature Trail. This is a three mile nature trail through woodland scenery, and along a river gorge with views of Pendle Hill.
The walk encounters fields and stiles, so appropriate footwear is recommended. The meeting point is at the end of All Springs Drive, next to Memorial Park for a 1pm start. The walk will finish at the same point at approximately 3pm.
If you would like to book a place for the pond dipping or would like to know more about PROSPECTS Foundation events, call Gemma Tomlinson 01254 380 675.
