Want to get outdoors and learn more about our natural world? 

We love being in the woods, whatever the weather!  Come and join us for one of our Family Fun sessions in Leigh Woods this winter!  

 Feed the birds

It may still be cold and grey outside, but by now many woodland and garden birds are gearing up for the new breeding season! From mid-January you will notice the increase in birdsong, both to attract mates and to stake out their ‘patch’.  Come and join us to listen to the sounds of the woods, play some bird games and make a beautiful willow bird feeder to take home!  (Suitable for age 3 yrs +)


Fire, Food and Folklore

Cooking over the fire

Find out how fires have been created through history, learn how to light a fire without matches, cook a range of simple foods over the fire and enjoy a hot drink while we sit around the fire to listen to and tell stories! (Suitable for age 4 yrs +)



Night Walk

Come to Leigh Woods and celebrate Earth Hour! Enjoy a guided walk and night games, see the stars (hopefully!) and find out what goes on when it’s really dark in the woods at night!

The first part of the walk will be at dusk, so we will slowly get used to the darkness of the woods. We’ll listen for owls, and maybe bats if it’s warm enough, find out more about badgers and other woodland creatures.  Please wear warm, waterproof clothing and bring a torch. We will, however, aim to walk without torches most of the time, as torchlight impairs night vision.  Enjoy a hot drink at the end.  (Suitable for age 4 yrs +).

Note: this event is weather-dependent and for safety reasons we will not be able to continue in heavy rain or high winds.

Family Fun sessions are run by experienced outdoors tutors who are DBS checked and First Aid qualified.
