The story of Great Ayton’s High Street through the eyes of pollinators from the earliest records to planting for the future will be shared via a free online talk on Wednesday 10th February, from 7:30pm – 9:00pm.
Hear from expert local botanist Martin Allen as he makes his way along the route of a new Bug Trail which will be launched in Great Ayton once restrictions allow. Caryn Loftus, from Moor Sustainable CIC, will share the answers to the research questions that were posed at the start of the project and that members of the History Society helped to answer. The trail aims to interest families in the natural and built heritage of the area by seeing how the planting for pollinators has changed over time as the village has developed and why it is important to now increase the number of plants suitable for pollinators and what part they can play.
The project is managed by Moor Sustainable CIC and has been made possible by money raised by National Lottery players through a National Lottery Heritage grant. Email Caryn Loftus for the link to the meeting.
