A FUN afternoon with a dinosaur and geological theme is being staged at Beaumont Park during half-term week.
The event on Tuesday, October 25, from 1pm to 4pm, features learning and play activities especially for children with an interest in dinosaurs, as well the chance to bring along your own rock, mineral and fossil specimens to be identified.
Short walks along footpaths in Beaumont Park will be held to view plant fossils and gritstones in the crags of sandstone left by old quarrying.
Experts will be able to explain how rocks have influenced the landscape of the area as they look across at views over the Holme Valley and Castle Hill.
There will also be exhibitions of rocks, minerals and fossils and photographs showing the geology of West Yorkshire on display.
The event is free and there is no need to book in advance.
Meet Alison Tymon from the West Yorkshire Geology Trust at the Beaumont Park Visitor Centre on Beaumont Park Road.
