This will be a chance to collect a harvest of seeds, nuts and fruits from the trees and shrubs in Danes Dyke woods. Pots and soil will be provided for participants to plant their gathered seeds.

Meet at Danes Dyke Local Nature Reserve car park near Bridlington at 10am. The walk around the reserve will be around 1.5 miles, including steps. Booking is essential.

‘Bat boxes at Millington Wood’ on Saturday, 6 October from 10am -12.30pm will be an opportunity to join in the autumn check of the bat boxes. It will be a stroll around the wood and a close look at the bats roosting in the boxes , with the East Yorkshire Bat Group.

Meet at Millington Wood Local Nature Reserve car park at 10am. The walk will be up to a mile around the reserve. Booking is essential.
