Are you between 8 and 12 years old? Are you wild about nature? Do you fancy yourself as the next Spring Watch presenter?! Yes! Then come along to our Future Field Naturalists' Club!

Become a field naturalistFollowing on from our successful Saturday sessions last year, combining investigating wildlife and developing I.D skills with fun, hands-on practical conservation activities, we'll now be running our nature club for 8 - 12 year-olds on one afternoon during each school holiday:

This time our nature club will exploring the incredible world of camouflage. Find out about the amazing ways creatures use their colouration to keep themselves hidden, then search for some of the wonderfully disguised creatures living at Carymoor! Is that really a dead leaf? A twig? A few tiny stones…?! We will then make a rustic 'hide' to keep us hidden when watching wildlife at Carymoor!

There will be further sessions during each school holiday as follows:

29th May 2015: Marvellous Moths - Goats, tigers and elephants

Moths come in all shapes, sizes and colours and many have wonderful names! We will 'unpack' our moth trap set overnight and discover who we have caught, before planting some moth-friendly plants on site.

Charge: £6 per child per session. Suitable for 8-12 year olds (unaccompanied).
