On Saturdays 2 and 16 July, from 11am – 3pm, there will be a chance to explore the amazing coastline on the doorstep of Sewerby Hall & Gardens, and try to identify the variety of flora and fauna, seaweed, shells and other animals, whilst investigating ecology on the beach.
Participants can try their hand at beachcombing, then create some interesting art from what they find, and discover more about the amazing beach they are on and why it is a ‘No Take Zone’. Visitors can learn about the local geology and try to identify the different types of rocks found on the beach.
There will also be a range of activities taking place in the Orangery at Sewerby Hall (standard entry charges apply) including seaweed and shell identification, investigation into litter on beaches and in the ocean, and how the local coastal area has been affected over time, the impact of climate change, and much more!
Beach activities will be free of charge, and no booking is required. For the activities in The Orangery, visitors can save on admission to Sewerby Hall and Gardens by booking online in advance on the website.
