Wildlife and Bushcraft session

Palmate newt found while pond dipping

2-4pm Wednesday 14th August 2024

Would you like to get up close to the hidden wildlife of Hazel Hill Wood? Or learn how to light a fire without matches? Come and enjoy time in the woods and learn new skills.

We plan to do:

– Pond dipping

– Fire lighting

– Woodland games

Dress for the weather in clothes and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. We highly recommend long trousers due to the presence of ticks in the wood – please click here for more info. Please check the weather forecast and wear waterproofs, warm layers, sun hat, sun protection and insect repellent as appropriate – if you’re not sure then bring it all! We will be outside for the duration of the session.

You are very welcome to arrive early and bring a picnic to enjoy in the wood before the session.

Ticket prices

General admission – £8 per person (adult or child).

Donation tickets – thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we are also able to offer donation tickets on a pay what you can basis.

Your money will support Hazel Hill Trust’s charitable work. Our vision for Hazel Hill Wood is a thriving ecosystem where people come to heal and learn through deeper connection with the living world.
