Back to Nature – Exhibition

20th July 2024 - 30th November 2024


Back to Nature

A temporary exhibition at Ely Museum from 20 July – 30 November 2024

Ely Museum have been working on their latest exhibition, Back to Nature ready for the summer. With input from the Ely Nature Friendly Farmers and conservation organisations such as the RSPB and the National Trust at Wicken Fen, the exhibition champions the environmental initiatives that are taking place across our fenland landscape.

The Fens are a truly unique and support an incredible range of wildlife including specialist species that are found nowhere else in the UK. A landscape that has changed dramatically from wetlands to a drained fenland creating farms to provide food for us. As technologies changed and farms have become increasingly reliant on chemical inputs on large scales, biodiversity has continued to decline. But here in a pocket of the Fens are the Nature Friendly Farmers of Ely, using innovative techniques to support traditional values in going back to nature.

From marvellous minibeasts to fruitful flowers. The exhibition includes several activities for children and family visitors including a roleplay vegetable patch and a craft table to make your own butterfly to add to the museum display. A new Back to Nature trail around the museum will be available from Saturday 20 July, so start the Summer Holidays with some family friendly fun!
