Nature studies

Our nature studies sessions, especially enjoyed by our younger visitors, include many different elements that teach you all about the local wildlife and surroundings as well as environmental awareness. We offer:

  • Pond-dipping

See what you can catch from our lake, using the nets provided, then try to identify your catch.

  • Mini beasts

Search under logs and through the undergrowth to see how many species you can find.

  • Tree and plant identification

Identify the trees and plant around you taking leaf and bark rubbings as you go.

  • Nature walk

Discover the world around you whilst exploring our woodlands.

  • Stream walking

Put on your wellies and splash your way through our network of streams, seeing what you can discover on they way

Our nature studies sessions are perfect for school trips, if you are interested and want to find out more please visit our school trips page, or contact us.
