Make a Bug Hotel

This half-term, join us in this fun hands on session to make a safe place for  minibeasts and insects.

This session will begin with an exploration of our woodland and grounds to help collect everything you need to make the perfect bug hotel! Once resources have been gathered, we’ll start building your creation which will make a wonderful feature in your garden this winter! What’s more, you’ll be helping the environment by creating warm and dry spaces that will attract different creepy crawlies.

This is the most ideal time to make a bug hotel as it’s where many animals look for cosy places to hibernate over winter!

Good for: lots of different types of minibeast such as ladybirds, bees, woodlice and spiders. You might even get frogs or hedgehogs coming to stay.
