Get up close

PEOPLE can get up close and personal with the wildlife at Bolam Lake Country Park on Wednesday.

The first event, Tracks and Trails, involves going on a short walk, investigating clues to the hidden wildlife of the area with staff and having a go at the animal print trail.

It will take place between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

Later in the day, from 2pm to 3.30pm, people can go lake dipping to see some of the small and wonderful creatures that live in Bolam Lake.

Equipment is provided, although those taking part need to take suitable footwear.

Both events cost £2.
