Go Wild this Summer

Go Wild this Summer

Jon Hawkins - Surrey Hills Photography

During the summer holidays, we want all children to get outdoors in their garden, Local Park or Nature Reserve and explore the wonderful wildlife summer has to offer. We have loads of activity ideas from discovering wildlife to arts and crafts.

Please follow the current Government social distancing guidance for your area whilst taking part in these activities.
