Volunteers help to deliver ‘Nature Detectives Live’ at Tring Park

Woodland Trust volunteers and staff worked together to deliver a successful family event at Tring Park over the Easter holidays.

 

150 children took part in a range of Nature Detective activities at the park. Children and families bug hunted, whittled and crafted their way around a puzzle to solve the mystery. It was officially decided that the Tring Park volunteers have superior mini den building skills to the Woodland Trust staff, with the dens constructed by Geof showcasing a roof, and even moss added for warmth. The event received very positive feedback, so thank you to all involved.

 

Tring Park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is made up of a mixture of chalk grassland scrub, mixed woodland and parkland. The site supports a diverse range of wildlife species, including floral species such as common spotted orchid, common rock rose and milk wort. These plants attract butterfly species such as the dingy and grizzled skipper.

 

Shaping the Tring Park landscape, tree planting has taken place throughout history and mature specimens include horse chestnut, beech, copper beech and Scots Pine. A lime tree avenue greets you as you enter the park.

 

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers for their support at this event and all other events!
