Touch, smell, listen and look as you explore outdoor and indoor woodland spaces. Uncover what's hiding nearby, hone your nature detective skills and play together.

Be curious. Get hands-on and connect with nature to discover and identify woodland creatures.

  • Try out curious challenges to test your spotting and listening skills.
  • Learn how to find and identify woodland species large and small using real field guides.
  • Read woodland-themed stories together or make up your own tales.
