About the event

With the temperatures dropping we'll expand our minibeast hotel making lots of useful homes for insects to ride out the winter. Learn to make hot drinks with a Kelly Kettle that uses just a handful of natural fuel and practice fire safety as we toast marshmallows and eat them in our cosy dens. Discover the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees on the reserve and get crafty with the colourful fallen leaves as we identify the different species.

This group is designed for Primary-aged children (7-11). Younger children are welcome to attend but may not get the most out of the event. Accompanying siblings aged under 3 may attend for free. Please book a ticket for everyone attending, including adults, to ensure we keep numbers within Government guidelines.

The session will be outside so please come dressed appropriately. You don't have to be a Wildlife Watch member to attend, everyone is welcome. However, if you are members you will benefit from the discount attendance fee and your activities can count towards your awards!
