Nature Explorers Summer Holidays Saturday 29th June – Tuesday 18th August

Among the trees and forest dens of Highlander's wood, there the chance to look closer at the wonders of the natural world around you.

Throughout the school summer holidays there will be experiments and explorations, crafts and creations, and other practical outdoor fun that all the family can be a part of.

Guided sessions take place both morning and evening, just drop in and take part - there's no need to book.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nature Explorers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
