Flowers, fossils and flying things
Families who want
to find out more about Scarborough’s natural environment are
invited to a “Flowers, Fossils and Flying Things” event in
It takes place on Thursday 2 August from
2-4pm and has been organised by the Friends of Falsgrave Park.
Activities taking place at the event
include a fossil roadshow with a local geology enthusiast, mini
beast hunting, treasure trail and lots of nature spotter sheets to
discover the types of flora and fauna in the park. There will also
be several stalls including natural arts, biscuit decorating, cake
and buns and refreshments.
Dorothy Russell, chairman of the Friends of
Falsgrave Park said: “This event is now a firm favourite with
visitors to the park; it is a fun way to learn about wildlife,
wildflowers and trees. Falsgrave Park is a hidden gem in
Scarborough and we hope by organising lots of different types of
events like this we can encourage more people to visit.”
Falsgrave Park is one of three parks in the
Scarborough borough to be awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award.
This award is given to parks which are well maintained and of high
quality. This will be the eighth consecutive year that Falsgrave
Park has received this award.
In conjunction with the Flowers, Fossils
and Flying Things event a special ceremony will take place to raise
the new flag and the Mayor of Scarborough Borough Helen Mallory has
been invited by the Friends to undertake the flag lifting.
