'Not' the DRIFFIELD SHOW 2020


If you have a garden or an outside space build a ‘hotel’ to attract wildlife, especially invertebrates.


You could use -

  • old bark 

  • holes in dead wood 

  • gaps between rocks 

  • hollow plant stems 

  • spaces in dead logs 

  • stones or old bricks

Almost anything you can find in your space can help you. 

All these can provide a home for small creatures that need somewhere to nest or to escape from predators or bad weather.


You can also use recycled materials  from your around your home.

Don't forget to ask an adult first!)
