Forest fun for kids on offer

August 01 2018

Families of primary school age children are being invited to discover their local woodland this summer at Ridge Wood nature reserve.

A forest trail with a free quiz, and woodland crafts, will be part of Forest Fun Time at the reserve between Chipping Sodbury and Yate.

The Friends of Ridge Wood volunteers, who are running the event, also  run work mornings and open days throughout the year to encourage people to maintain the woodland, and find out more about flora and fauna. Recently they’ve run an owl prowl, evening bird chorus walks, moth trapping walks and bat walks.

Forest Fun Time entry is free, and the event is suitable for children up to age 11 accompanied by their parents.  No dogs are allowed. 

The event is being held on 23 August between 2 and 4pm. The trail starts at the Jubilee Gardens entrance to the woodland.
