On Friday afternoon we were kindly invited along to Annbank Primary for their Community Picnic. And what an afternoon we had, the weather was excellent as was the turnout by pupils and parents.
The Trust is always happy to participate in events like this (time/schedules permitting) as we really believe that education is a powerful tool and that it is important to engage all generations with natural history.
Unfortunately it was so windy our presentation boards wouldn’t remain up, but pupils (and adults!) Enjoyed getting to grips with invertebrate identification as well as chatting about the type of work the Trust is involved with.
There are definitely worse ways to spend a Friday afternoon!
