A SEASIDE park is inviting families with children to join wildlife experts for a hands-on activity.

Hartlepool’s Wild Green Spaces team will hold a bird box making activity in Seaton Carew Park next month.

Wildlife experts will help visitors to make their own bird box that they can take home to put in their own gardens to attract birds.

The event is set to take place in the park, off Station Lane, on Thursday, February 21, from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

All are welcome but booking is essential.

It is just one of a host of events the wildlife team are due to run at the park after teaming up with the Friends of Seaton Park volunteer group.

Last summer, the park celebrated the opening of a new sensory garden thanks to funding from Hartlepool fabrication firm Heerema and BP.

And on Sunday, February 10, the Friends are looking for people to join them for a tree planting event between 10am and 2pm.

Up to 100 trees will be planted and people can sponsor a tree, maybe in memory of a loved one.

The next planned activity with the Wild Green Spaces team will be an Easter Treasure Hunt on Wednesday, April 10.

Anyone wanting to take part in the bird box event should email wildgreenspaces@hartlepool.gov.uk to reserve your place.
