Students from Bardsey School enjoyed enormously their day on the 12th October pond dipping in East Keswick Marsh. After the event, they all wrote letters of thanks which included excellent sketches of many of the creatures they found. Here a re a couple of the letters… there’s not enough room to put them all.
The East Keswick Wildlife Trust introduced the Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust to Bardsey Primary School. The YDRT brought along an Educational River Table which demonstrates the process of how rivers flow and what affects flooding, erosion and pollution. The students will be visiting the Marsh with the EKWT to look at the beck and its flora and the Trust’s surveying methods.
The local Beavers group visited Elliker Wood and Field where they explored, climbed trees and discovered the wide variety of butterflies, bees and wild flowers.
