NATURE was the star of the show at Scarborough Environment Fair, which took place at the Spa on Saturday.
The event featured more than 20 wildlife groups who had stands and information displays.
There were also nature-based activities for children, both at the fair and outside in various locations.
The event was organised by Yorkshire Naturalists’ Union and encouraged people to get out and about to see what types of creatures can be found locally.
John Bradley, chairman of the Friends of Raincliffe Woods, had a stall about the group and was giving out information about the Secret Wood event – a family activity day – on September 17.
He said: “It’s been going well and there are quite a few different stalls. Some of the young kids have been out on the beach picking up specimens and getting them identified.
“We’ve had lots of interest in the Secret Wood with some people saying they would travel from near Leeds to take part.”
