During this morning experience, you are invited to witness our commitment to biodiversity and actively participate in monitoring activities.

Come, explore and contribute to the thriving ecosystem we have cultivated.

Arrive at Sculpture by the Lakes – 9am

Rebecca, Sculpture by the Lakes’ on-site entomologist, will meet you in The Makers Yard and take you to our Moth Trap to investigate the species caught overnight before releasing them. Did you know there are over 2500 species of Moth in the UK? They play a vital part in the pollination and their diversity is an early indicator of positive or negative ecological effects. During this process Rebecca takes note of all the species we find to contribute to Living Record, a conservation support tool.

Intermission – 10am – 11am.

Included as part of your ticket is £5 to spend in the café.

Enjoy a hot drink and something sweet before the next part of your morning.

Guided Walk – 11am – 12pm.

Rebecca will guide you around our Botanic Garden. Listening for our more elusive breeding birds and engaging with our extensive common and notable species of Dragonfly and Damselflies. This is a vital part of our contribution to conservation efforts. During this time you will have a dragonfly checklist, see how many you can spot! Rebecca will also teach you how to identify birds by their song. You never know what you are going to see on Rebecca’s walks, so bring your binoculars and get ready!

At the end of the guided walk, you are welcome to spend the rest of the day enjoying the art, nature, and peace of Sculpture by the Lakes.

Registered carers may enter for free when accompanying in their care. Before visiting please check the weather and how how this might effect the ground. If it’s raining and in winter, we’d recommend bringing your wellies.

Disabled parking close to The Kitchen and disabled toilets. Access to The Sculpture Park and The Makers Yard is wheelchair friendly. The Sculpture Park is relatively flat with undulating areas but is uneven in some places. There are a few grassy paths so in dry weather wheelchairs can get all the way around but mobility scooters with small wheels may find these areas more difficult. Before visiting please consider the weather and how how this might effect the ground conditions. If you are bringing a mobility scooter please make sure the battery is fully charged on arrival. To rent a mobility scooter for the day you can visit www.rapidmobilityltd.com
We also have an all terrain light weight wheelchair available to hire daily. You can book our wheelchair via the website.

Sadly we cannot allow children under 14, including babies at Sculpture by the Lakes.

Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome to the Makers Yard and the Sculpture Park, apart from the Kitchen Garden and ornamental gardens.
