Seasoned visitors take walk on the wild side

VISITORS to one of the region’s leading museums can have an insight into how the changing seasons affect people and wildlife.

The Yorkshire Museum’s Wild Wednesday events in the Museum Gardens in York are being held this month. Activities include making bird boxes for spring, solar telescopes for summer, kite making for autumn and woolly mammoth face masks for winter.

Assistant curator Emma Williams said: “The transformation from season to season is a wonderful thing, each one with their own set of traditions, colours, weather and effects on nature. We will be inviting the public to explore these themes by taking part in various fun activities as well as handling objects from our collections.”
