Opportunities abound for enjoying Nidderdale, thanks to new events guide

Nidderdale: offering something
 for everyone this year.
The Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team has launched its April to October events programme enabling visitors and residents to explore and appreciate the outstanding landscape.

Activities include willow weaving, tracking and den building. Those who like to get more involved can have a go at the traditional skill of dry stone walling or make their own bird box.

Those who are keen to learn more about the area can benefit from a range of guided walks and talks on topics such as geology, heritage and wildlife. There are also opportunities to go on a moorland safari with a gamekeeper, a wild food or fungi foray and a beekeeping demonstration.

Full details can be found at www.nidderdaleaonb.org.uk and will also be in the area's visitor guide available from mid-April in tourist information centres and at local attractions. Copies can also be ordered by telephoning the office on 01423 712950 or by emailing aonbevents@harrogate.gov.uk.

The team says that places often fill up quickly and recommends early booking.
