What’s happening at Leigh Woods in March
We know corona virus is causing concern all over the country and here in Bristol. At the moment we are still able to take bookings for school groups in Terms 5 and 6 at Leigh Woods. We are also planning to continue with our Mothers’s day event on Sunday 22nd March (10-11.30am) and our Spring Flowers ID event on Sunday 5th April (1.30-3.30pm). Of course if the Government changes its advice on gatherings of a certain number we will immediately alter our planned events to fit in with this, and refund any moneys due to customers.
My Green World moves its programmes to Leigh Woods
We are going into full partnership with Forestry England at Leigh Woods and will be running all our programmes at this fantastic National Nature Reserve site from Spring/Summer 2020!
We have expanded our range of programmes in Leigh Woods and many old favourites will be available this year. We even have fabulous new seating inside our natural Green Barn which makes a great place to have lunch!
From the end of Term 6 2020 there will no longer be any Key Stage 1 programmes at Folly Farm. However, we are not leaving this wonderful site completely and will still be tutoring for Avon Wildlife Trust at the Folly Farm centre for Key Stage 2 for autumn 2020.
Key Stage 1 programmes are available at Folly Farm for Terms 5 & 6 2020.
Email us now to reserve a date for your class at Leigh Woods or Folly Farm this summer!
This year’s line up of Walks and Talks is shaping up very nicely and starts with our popular Winter Tree ID session with Neill Talbot from Avellana Ecology on 16th Feb. We then follow on with:
Water Voles with Chris Sperring 1st March
Spring Flowers with Avellana Ecology 5th April
Dawn Birdsong with Mike Dilger 2nd May
Bat of Leigh Woods with Lia Gilmour 15th May
Family Owl Prowl with Ian McGuire 2nd Oct
Kids in the Woods returns on Wednesday 12th January 2020!
It has been lovely to see everybody at Kids in the Woods this autumn! We have enjoyed making homes for mini beasts and going on a bug hunt, learning about mammals preparing for winter and listening to stories and enjoying hot chocolate around the fire. Our themes for the winter and spring will include cooking (!), birds and how to feed them in our gardens, nests, and eggs (both real and chocolate). We’re also going to get arty and make some giant woodland creations and think about trees in springtime.
Hope to see you all again soon!
