Bring your children along to help them explore the natural world. This will involve getting to know the forest school site and bushcraft activities!
This Wildlife Watch club is based on Forest School principles, providing a wonderful opportunity for children 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. Each month will have a different theme based in a special forest school site. Children will learn to become confident in an outdoor setting, learn basic woodcraft skills and explore their natural surroundings with games and lots of outdoor activities. It’ll provide a great opportunity for you and your child to have fun in the natural environment and will aim to encourage an interest in wildlife.
Drink and snacks provided.

This is what one of the mums had to say about the group...
I attended Bruno’s Nature Tots session with my son this morning & it was amazing. So much more than I had imagined, we both had a wonderful time. Thank you Bruno & your team! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
