Family Day - Nature Detectives and Natural Art


Join us for a day of nature discovery in Ribblehead Quarry, a former working quarry which has been part of the Ingleborough National Nature Reserve since the 1950s. hunt for minibeasts, learn about wildflowers and try your hand at making some natural art from found objects. Make sure you bring a camera, as we will leave everything as we found it. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the mountainside in all its summer glory.

Especially suitable for children aged 4-10, but all are welcome. All children must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times. Please make sure the correct number of adult and child tickets are booked.

iNaturalist Project

iNaturalist is a website and an app, which allows people to upload their findings and wildlife spots while out in nature. We have set up a Wild Ingleborough project, so that visitors to the Ingleborough Massif can contribute to our understanding of the wildlife and plantlife present in the area.

The project for 2022 is now complete, and a summary of its findings can be viewed here: A Year in the Life of Ingleborough 2022 Project summary

Thank you to everyone who recorded their sightings and observations; it all helps to build a more complete picture of the impact of our work.

A new iNaturalist project for 2023 is now up and running, so please continue to contribute!



You don’t need to be an expert to contribute – you can ask for help or confirmation with your identifications, and you can also use iNaturalist’s “seek” app to help you:
