We all understand how important it is to keep ourselves physically active and to eat a healthy, balanced diet. With this in mind, The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside was delighted to support The Bolton Together programme this Easter. The children were welcomed to join us at the Bolton Environmental Resource Centre, or at The Hive at Moss Bank Park.
We engaged with children from the ages of 8 – 14, offering a range of activities to keep them active. The weather was indeed kind to us so we had the opportunity to play a wide variety of woodland games, try bushcraft activities (including learning how to safely set fires and cook on them), forage for wild herbs and fruits, experiment with environmental arts and crafts, go birdwatching and tree climbing, do photo scavenger hunts, woodland walks and make some rather impressive shelters using natural materials.
