If you have reached that point in the school summer holidays where you are quickly running out of adventures and activities for the children, then do not worry, The Wildlife Trusts have come to the rescue!

My Wild Summer is a wildlife and activity guide jam-packed with suggestions, puzzles and activity sheets. All of which will help families to explore nature and wild places, at home, on days out, or on holiday.

Spending time exploring nature at a young age really can bring a lifetime of pleasure. Begin the journey now with a multitude of wildlife experiences to be had over the summer months - help count butterflies, learn how to plant your garden to attract native species, go exploring for tiny marine beasties or discover the moonlit world of moths, owls and hedgehogs.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive Rob Stoneman said: ‘We live alongside a stunning array of wildlife here in Yorkshire and My Wild Summer aims to encourage families to explore Yorkshire’s wild places. This is a fabulous time of year to visit Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves or join a Trust event.’
Potteric Carr Nature Reserve in Doncaster is a haven for mini beast hunters; with a sensory garden and wildflower meadows providing habitat for all kinds of insects. Stirley Community Farm near Huddersfield also has lots on offer with its ‘Kids Club’ sessions. And a trip to Yorkshire’s stunning coastline is an essential part of any summer holiday so why not visit Spurn National Nature Reserve or discover the marine wildlife living within Flamborough’s rockpools from the Living Seas Centre at South Landing.

The Wildlife Trusts’ President and wildlife cameraman, Simon King, sums up his Wild Summer experience: ‘My Wild Summer is a feast for all the senses. It is the lazy song of grasshoppers rasping in the grass – the clatter of a dragonfly’s wings as it twists to chase a fly. Summer is the long summer days, the splash of joyful swallows dipping into lakes and rivers for a drink, and enigmatic evenings thrill to the flitting forms of bats.’
