Tips for March
It’s March and the start of Spring, here’s some handy tips for the month ahead.
1. Start ‘em Young
With the coming of spring comes The Young Naturalists Club! A great monthly club for 8 years + where they can learn about wildlife, nature and conservation. As well as getting a good deal of fresh air.
2. International Women’s Day
Thursday 8th is International Women’s Day, although we celebrate three great men here at the museum, we will be looking at some of the extraordinary women in their lives!
3. Mother’s Day
4. See our new Albatross
Last week we unveiled out new albatross to our visitors. This month we celebrate this amazing bird in the final Antarctic talk of the year. Professor Richard Philips will be talking about the human impact on Antarctic bird life.
5. Visit our new Museum!
Many parts of our renovation are now complete, with more and more of the museum being finished during the month. By the end of the month we’re hoping that all the house sections of the renovation will be finished.
6. Hosts of Golden Daffodils
March and Daffodils go hand in hand. We can’t wait for the garden to be full of them!
7. Celebrate Lawrence Oates
March 17th marks both Lawrence Oates’ birthday and death day. Celebrate his life my coming along to our Antarctic lecture and visiting the Antarctic Gallery.
8. British summer time Begins
Not only is it going to get a whole lot lighter in the evenings, we’re also changing to our Summer opening hours (10:30-5pm) so you now have an extra half an hour of Gilbert White exploration!
Okay, so Easter is in April… but Good Friday is in March, as the start of our Easter Bunny Trail!
