Exploring Nature’s Wonders: A Day with Ryevitalise at North York Moors National Park

We’re thrilled to extend our sincerest gratitude to the #Ryevitalise team at North York Moors National Park and artist Ed Carter for an unforgettable session with Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts from 1st Helmsley, 1st Kirkbymoorside, and 1st Pickering!

From delving into the fascinating world of cased Caddis to channeling creativity through mirror decoration for Helmsley Castle’s display, and even trying their hand at Willow weaving, the day was brimming with enriching experiences for all involved.

Cased Caddis might seem like small creatures, but they play a significant role in our ecosystem. As indicators of water quality, they help scientists assess the health of rivers and streams. By learning about these tiny creatures, our youth gain a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of nature and the importance of preserving our waterways.

Decorating mirrors for Helmsley Castle’s display not only showcased our youth’s artistic talents but also fostered a sense of pride and community engagement. It’s moments like these that spark creativity and instill a sense of ownership in our heritage sites.

The session with the Ryevitalise team and Ed Carter was more than just an educational experience—it was a journey of discovery, creativity, and community engagement. It’s through initiatives like these that we nurture a love for nature, instill valuable skills, and foster a sense of stewardship for the environment.

Once again, a huge thank you to the Ryevitalise team, Ed Carter, and everyone involved for making this day possible. Here’s to many more adventures in nature and opportunities for learning and growth!
