Bug hotels are coming to Conningbrook Lakes, with youngsters invited to come along and get involved in creating the new bug homes. The bug hotel activity will be led by Kent Wildlife Trust expert, Cristina Juan and is organised by Latimer and Westerhill Homes.
The bug hotels, once constructed, will be sited around the park and lakes, offering a great way of recycling and giving homes to all kinds of creepy crawlies. In a guided activity, youngsters will be encouraged to explore around the park to gather the materials needed to make the hotels, such as leaves, fallen twigs and tree bark, which will help to create damp, dark corners and homes for spiders, beetles, woodlice and bumble bees.
Conningbrook Lakes and Country Park is a haven for wildlife and birds. The regeneration of this former quarry site next to the Julie Rose Stadium, will see the man-made lakes turned into a family-orientated country park, offering some of the best leisure facilities of its kind in the South East. The additional investment for improving the park’s facilities is also ensuring the preservation and encouragement of the wildlife around the park, creating a facility for visitors to explore and enjoy the rich birdlife and wildlife.
