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 spring and summer!  


Trees, Leaves and Seeds

The woodland is a magical place, especially when it bursts into life in spring.  Come and find out more about some of the trees in Leigh Woods, their leaves, bark and what their seeds look like! How tall are our trees and how old do we think they are? We’ll go for a walk among the wild garlic and bluebells and make something special from nature to take home with us.  (Suitable for age 3 – 7 yrs)


We’re going on a bug hunt!

Make the most of a spring morning and immerse yourselves in the miniature world of mini-beasts in Leigh Woods!

Armed with bug pots and magnifying glasses, find out about the amazing little animals that are so important in our world.  Discover what jobs the mini-beasts do, where they like to live and what they like to eat – or what eats them!  Learn some amazing facts about mini-beasts to impress your friends with and make your own super-mini-beast to take home! (Suitable for age 3 – 8 yrs)


Discovering Dormice

Join us on a journey of discovery to see the woods through the eyes of a dormouse. Find out more about what these amazing, nocturnal little animals need to survive – where they live, what they eat and how they protect themselves from danger.  AND, if we’re really lucky, get to see a live, wild dormouse! (Suitable for 5-11 yrs)

Please note: Dormice are a protected species and these activities can only take place with the help of a licensed dormouse handler.

Cooking over the fire

Would you all survive if lost alone in a remote forest? Spend time in the woods as a family and use resources around you to test your survival skills. Learn how to build a shelter to keep you warm, dry and safe in the woods and then see if you can light a fire without matches and cook bread on it! Age : 4 yrs upwards.
