Discovery Day at Thrybergh Country Park was the bee’s knees

Families making a bird box at the discovery day

Families discovered Thrybergh Country Park, learning about the wildlife and their surroundings.

We had a wonderful day at the Thrybergh Country Park Discovery Day on Saturday 13th August.

Rangers, Brad and Dan together with Neighbourhood Coordinators, Jo and Nic, were joined by families from across Rotherham and of course, the lovely wildlife found at the park. 

We all experienced first-hand what it's like to be a Ranger. Bird boxes were created and we helped to install two huge bug hotels. As well as safely enjoying the sunshine and of course, taste testing the fruit and flapjack! 

The bird boxes will be installed at the park around October time, ready for the next nesting season. Perfect timing for the Halloween themed box, created by young person, Will! 

Co-hosted by the Neighbourhoods and Green Spaces Teams, the day was designed to offer an insight into what the park has to offer and the ways in which people can get involved. 

Feedback from the event was very positive and the teams plan to host another day in the autumn, taking place over October half-term. Keep an eye out for more information coming soon.

Thank you to everyone who came along and enjoyed the day in Hope Fields. We hope you visit the park again very soon.
