Lewes District Council is holding a nature-themed treasure hunt entitled LDC Wild at nature reserves, parks and green spaces across the district during the school summer holidays.

Residents, particularly families and young people, are invited to visit participating locations to hunt for the hidden creature pictures.

Tweet a photo of yourself with one of the creatures to @LewesDC using the hashtag #LDCWild to be entered into a weekly draw to win a nature-themed prize.

LDC Wild aims to encourage residents and visitors to the district to get out and discover the beautiful and varied green spaces the district has to offer while taking part in a fun and educational activity.
