We offer full-day wildlife clubs in the Summer, October, February, and Easter Holidays. In these clubs, we tend to go a little further afield and explore new and exciting areas. The clubs are designed to challenge kids to discover and explore wildlife by immersing themselves in wild spaces with large and fun groups.

Scroll down the page to see the list of clubs we are running during the coming school holidays.
