DerwentWISE celebration

Thu 2nd Aug
Celebrating 5 years of DerwentWISE at the Darley Park Superhero Picnic

Thursday 2nd August

11am – 3pm

No booking required just show up!

Come and find us celebrating 5 years of DerwentWISE in our giant circus -style big top in Darley Park. We will be having lots of fun making, creating, playing games and exploring nature.

All DerwentWISE activities are free!

Get hands on and crafty by making mini mosaics, a Highland cow from willow, giant land art, nature power bracelets, clay fossils, and Caddisfly cases. Learn about the local wildlife by river dipping and mini beast hunts. Learn about the landscape and heritage through story-telling and weaving. Try and find your way out of the stone labyrinth, make sure you don’t get lost!

Space Cadets will be in their beautifully bright Seedpod asking people what they love about the Derwent Valley. The results will help them to design of a giant inflatable interpretation of DerwentWISE!

DerwentWISE are very pleased to be having our first celebration event as part of Derby City Council’s Love Parks week at Darley Park.

For the last 5 years we’ve been learning about and caring for the wildlife and heritage of the Lower Derwent Valley with schools, families, volunteers and local groups. Now it’s time to share and celebrate the projects and the people that made it happen, and discover what’s next!
