Wet and wild afternoon fun at nature reserve

Have your say

Sheffield Wildlife Trust is to hold an afternoon of nature discovery at one of its city nature reserves.

The Dragon Flies and Wild Things event will take place on Saturday, September 7, from 1pm to 3pm at Blackburn Meadows Nature Reserve, off Steel Street in Sheffield. A trust spokeswoman said: “There are plenty of wild things around the reserve, so grab your magnifying glass, have a go at tracking some animal footprints, and see what you can find hidden along the trail.

“We’ll also be running some craft activities, so you can create your own winged willow dragonflies to take home.”

The event is part of the Wildlife Trusts’ national ‘Wetland Wildlife’ weekend, which celebrates the UK’s stunning wetlands.
