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!  

Night Walk Saturday 23rd March 6.15pm – 8.15pm

Come to Leigh Woods and celebrate being out in the woods at night! Enjoy a guided walk and night games, see the stars (hopefully!) and find out what goes on when it’s really dark deep in the forest! 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. Enjoy a warm drink at the end. Age: 4 yrs upwards

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

Dawn Chorus with wildlife presenter Mike Dilger Saturday 6th April 6am – 7.30am


Join Mike Dilger for a special dawn chorus walk at the beautiful National Nature Reserve of Leigh Woods.  Starting at the slightly later time of 6am to make it a bit more family-friendly, Mike will inspire old and young with his huge enthusiasm and encyclopaedic knowledge of British flora and fauna.  As we walk, we’ll listen to the dawn birdsong, and Mike will also point out emerging wildflowers on the way.

Enjoy a hot drink and a croissant at the end of the walk.

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 – and marshmallows – on it!  We’ll also enjoy a hot chocolate at the end. Age : 4 yrs upwards.




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