WILDLIFE living in the Forest of Bowland will be at the centre of a ‘discovery day’.

The RSPB and Lancashire County Council have teamed up to host the day on Saturday, June 28, with a series of nature activities held at the Beacon Fell Country Park from 10am to 4pm.

The free event will feature wildlife trails, crafts, games and competitions, as well as a series of guided walks.

The day forms part of the RSPB’s Bowland Futurescape, a project aimed at helping nature and wildlife across the area through a variety of conservation initiatives.

Amy Hannan, Futurescapes community engagement officer, said: “The Forest of Bowland is home to range of fantastic wildlife from majestic birds of prey such as peregrines and hen harriers to vibrant moths and dragonflies. At the discovery day we want to show local people some of these fascinating plants and animals that live on their door step.

“We live such hectic lives that we sometimes miss the beauty of the nature that is right in front of us so it is important to stop and take the time to appreciate our surroundings.”
