Ford Park in Ulverston is opening their brand-new Woodland Animal Trail next week.

They are inviting families invited to come along and be the first to explore the new trail when it launches during half term.

The Woodland Animal Trail will officially open on Tuesday February 13 at 10am, with craft activities for families to take part in run by Ford Park volunteers in the Fernery.

Barbara Bundy, who is one of the Park’s longstanding volunteers, created this wonderful trail to help children learn about the woodland animals that live in parks and woodlands. The trail is designed to help children identify animals by their prints and habitats.

Working closely with Moray, our Volunteer Team Leader and volunteer Niall, Barbara designed the trail and helped make the trail signs with Graphix Signs in Barrow.

Once they have finished exploring, everyone is invited to join Barbara and Jean Povey in the Fernery for a family craft session to make woodland animals to take home.

Ford Park said: “There is so much wildlife all around us, but we rarely see it, so the trail will educate children on what to look for when out and about.”
