About the event

Perfect for 10-17 year olds who wild about the outdoors! Spend the day discovering the animals that live in Nower Wood through a series of fun and engaging activities.

In the morning we will learn to set live traps for mice, voles and shrews and examine our catch before releasing them safely back in the woods.

Through this fun and engaging activity, children will learn about our native mammals and how we survey for them to measure population and habitat conditions.

In the afternoon, we'll go dipping in our beautiful woodland pond and examine the many creatures we find with magnifying glasses and ID sheets by carrying out an invertebrate survey. We bet they've never seen a water stick insect or freshwater leech before!

At the end of the day, children can choose from a range of engaging bushcraft activities. They could try their hand at whittling with knives, shelter building or other fun activities and finish with a snack around a campfire they've built and lit themselves.

Important information and about the day

This event is suitable for 9-17 year olds and booking is essential. You'll need to wear appropriate warm outdoor clothing and strong boots for working in the woods. You'll also need to bring a packed lunch and a snack, and please note we are a nut-free centre, so avoid food containing nuts. 

Drop off is at 9:30am and pick up will be at 4pm, so please arrive promptly so we can get straight out and on with the day!

Although adults are encouraged to drop their children off, due to staffing limitations if your child requires 1:1 assistance at school you will need to provide an accompanying adult for the event. If your child has any other particular needs, please do get in touch so we can discuss how best to meet these before booking.
