Children produced some beautiful works of art inspired by Victoria Park’s wildlife. Some of these are shown below.  We transformed the park’s paths into a wild wonderland of chalk creatures, with Sue Gregor. We made Bristol’s biggest bee colony using recycling materials, to celebrate Get Bristol Buzzing, with Sara Lee and we built a giant spider web, clay animals and bead insects.

People of all ages used the park's leaves to create botanical mud prints with Helen Adshead and Krisztina Ramn. Children drew awesome fantasy minibeasts inspired by what they’d found, with Claire Hutt. We discovered that trees can draw pictures, powered by Rob Martin’s wind-powered invention and we
 heard wild tales with Martin Maudsley.
