Stanmer Park Wildlife Watch - Saturdays (11/03/17) Saturday, 11th March 2017 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Second Saturday each month: 11 March, 8 April, 13 May, 10 June and 8 July 2017 (5 sessions) – with Paula - Afternoons
Wildlife Watch is for 5-8 year olds with accompanying adults
Bring your children along to help them explore the natural world. This will involve getting to know the forest school site, woodland and bushcraft activities!
Wildlife Watch clubs are based on Forest School principles, providing a wonderful opportunity for children aged 5-8 to experience and learn from nature. They will be encouraged to tackle hands-on outdoor activities, work co-operatively with others, and have an opportunity to gain a sense of achievement while developing social skills and boosting confidence. Sessions are themed around the changing seasons and discovering how to help local wildlife thrive.
Meet on the grass by the church opposite Stanmer House. Stanmer Park is located near Falmer, to the north of Brighton, next to the University of Sussex. If you are using sat nav, the best post code is BN1 9QA, which is Stanmer House, within sight of our meeting start point.
There is a free public car park near the Church next to the farm yard.
