Go Batty this Half Term!

A batty competition, spooky fancy dress fun, Halloween crafts and wild play in the woods - we have lots of activities to keep your little monsters busy this half term.

"October half term is a great opportunity to pull on your wellies and get outside and go wild with your children,” said the Trust’s Charlotte Magowan.

“We have over 70 fantastic reserves across the county you can visit for free with your family. So why not kick through the autumn leaves, go on a minibeast safari, make a stick man - or sign up for one of our brilliant events?”

Spooky Wild Play on Monday October 24th promises a scarily good time with Halloween activities, crafts, den building and marshmallow toasting on Ockham Common.

Come along to Furzefield Wood in Mertsham for some Frightful Fun on Wednesday October 26th - little monsters in fancy dress are welcome.

Or try your hand at being a Ranger for a day at Wild Rangers on Friday 28th October. Have a go at conservation work, den building and fire lighting on Ockham Common.

Younger wild things will enjoy Wild Tots on Friday 28th October - join us for stories, adventures and discoveries in the woods at Newlands Corner.

The school holidays also coincides with ‘Wild About Gardens Week’, which runs from 24th-30th October. And with Halloween just around the corner, this year’s event is all about bats!
