Earth Day: The Wild Escape
Saturday 22 April
Drop-in session from 11am – 3pm
Join us to celebrate the Wild Escape project on Earth Day. Pupils from Hudson Road Primary School have been working with artists and writers to draw animals from the Museum collection and illustrate the journeys of their escape to natural habitats. See displays of their work and take part in creative activities, talks and tours to find out more about how you can protect and support local wildlife.
Throughout the day, visitors can enjoy:
- An exhibition of Hudson Road Primary School’s artwork and poems, based on animals living in freshwater, coastal, woodland and grassland habitats and their wild escape from the Museum cases.
- Pick up an animal explorer activity sheet
- Storyboard drawing activities to show the wild escape of the Museum’s taxidermy creatures with artist Steph Smith
- A wild walk in Mowbray Park to spot wildlife and find out about some of the dangers facing local wildlife
The Wild Escape is made possible by lead support from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Art Fund and a group of generous individuals and trusts.
