Jul 19, 2021 | Family Activities, Projects | 0 comments

As part of TCR Hub Family Activities this summer, families can enjoy Wildlife Wonder sessions every Thursday from 10am to 12 noon to explore nature through a series of activities. The first session starts on Thursday 22nd July with  Caron Henderson and Imogen Coverdale from the North Pennines AONB Partnership sharing a session to celebrate trees.

As Sarah Gent, Family Activities Coordinator at TCR comments “We are delighted to be welcoming Caron and Imogen from the North Pennines AONB Partnership to the Hub to help families learn more about their natural environment. These sessions offer your family the chance to enjoy being outside and together in a safe, friendly environment.”

Caron and Imogen are working on Tees-Swale: naturally connected, which is a major conservation programme in partnership with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, covering the landscapes of Upper Teesdale and Upper Swaledale. Caron said: “Trees are amazing and we just can’t live without them – let’s enjoy exploring just how wonderful trees are. This session will help you and the children identify different types of tree through playing games and going on a tree hunt. We will also be celebrating trees with clay tree dressing and bark rubbing!”

Activities recommended for children aged 4 plus but all are welcome. Children must be accompanied by adults (and vice versa!) and everyone needs a ticket. It costs £3 per person. These activities take place in the grounds of TCR Hub unless otherwise stated. You can book tickets on the TCR website at
