Half-term at Amberley Museum: Green Week activities to celebrate nature

Amberley Museum has eight days packed with nature-themed activities for families to enjoy this half-term to mark Green Week.

The museum is encouraging and inspiring visitors to ‘Think Global, Act Local’, to take steps to interact more with nature and reduce their impact on the planet.

As part of Green Week (May 29 to June 6) there will also be a fun family trail and hands-on craft activities.

World Environment Day (June 5) will be the highlight of the week, showcasing several local, mostly community-led organisations working to make West Sussex a more environmentally friendly place.

There will be trade stalls, demonstrations, performances and a number of fun activities for families and all ages.

The museum’s nature trails have been refurbished with new information boards and children’s activities, thanks to funding from the South Downs National Park Authority’s Covis Recovery Fund.

Spectacular views of the Arun Valley can be enjoyed from the Hillside Trail, or take a more leisurely walk on the Lower Trail.

The museum has put in place Covid-19 measures to ensure the safety of visitors, volunteers and staff and has received the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard to confirm that it is following Government and industry guidelines and processes to maintain cleanliness and social distancing.
