Previous Events:

Discovering Wass - A Natural History Weekend
Friday April 27th - Sunday April 29th 2012

The idea for this weekend originated from the fact that a previous inhabitant of Wass, Dr Archie Heron, collected data on moths for many years and also built up a large collection of specimens. When he died these were donated to York Museum. This weekend some returned home to Wass on loan. We put together a programme of talks, walks and activities related to the natural history and also the geology of Wass. Despite the dreadful weather it was well attended with many hardy people braving the wind and pouring rain to look at birds and geology. All events were free and we were very grateful to all those who helped with funding: Ryedale District Council, NY Moors and Coast LEADER project, NY Moors Lime and Ice Project, also to York Museum for the loan of the moths.
