Minibeast Hunt and Litter Pick at Whitworth Park

Join City of Trees for a combined litter pick and mini beast hunt. Whilst clearing Whitworth Park of rubbish, we’ll discover the fascinating world of mini beasts, bugs and insects that live amongst us. Armed with our litter pickers, hand lenses and ID guides, we’ll work together to identify any many-legged (or no-legged!) finds. This session is suitable for all ages – join us for the whole session or drop in for a little while.

Tools and gloves will be provided but please bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the activity and weather.

Time: 11am-1pm

Meeting Point: The rear of the gallery, at the Park Side reception, accessed via Denmark Road, M15 6FG

Transport: There is very limited parking around Whitworth Park with a small amount of street parking along the park boundaries. There is a very small private car park on Acomb Street, M15 6FQ called Greenheys Community Car Park which can be used.

There is a bus stop on Oxford Road immediately beside Whitworth Park with multiple services running throughout the day. The nearest train station is Oxford Road a 24 min walk from the park.
