Woodland Open Day

Join us for a celebration of all things woodland on Sunday 3rd November!

We will be hosting a FREE wild day out with activities taking place at both Bubbenhall Wood Nature Reserve (booking required) and additional drop in activities starting at nearby, Ryton Pools Country Park.


@ Bubbenhall Wood Nature Reserve - Practical woodland taster sessions

Join us at Bubbenhall Wood for practical  taster sessions

11am - 1pm OR 1.30 - 3.30pm

These sessions are an informal introduction to woodland skills such as coppicing with hand tools.  Due to the use of tools, these sessions are suitable for ages 7+.  The sessions will be rounded off with the option to make your own bird feeder to take home with you.  Our fantastic volunteers will be on hand to provide all the tools and the know how.  Places on these sessions are limited so booking is essential.  Click on the desired session below to book your tickets!
