Nature Detectives LIVE is coming to Heartwood Forest. Join us for a puzzling woodland whodunnit, plus tons of hands-on activities including tree tracking, bug hunting and badge making.

Are you ready to solve a wild mystery? The animals have gathered for a picnic in the woods, but a huge hazelnut cake has gone missing! It’s been eaten and all that’s left is a pile of crumbs. Nature Detective, we need you to solve the case and track down the cake-eating culprit. As part of your investigation you’ll get the chance to build a mini den, try whittling, hunt for minibeasts and make a badge to take home.

This family event is a great chance to get up close to wildlife and discover some of the creatures that live at Heartwood. The adventures are suitable for young explorers under 13. And dogs on leads are welcome too, woof woof!

Pre-booking is essential.

For booking information, please go to:  https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/naturedetectives/blogs/nature-detectives-blog/2018/07/nature-detectives-live-heartwood-forest/

This year’s Heartwood Festival is on Saturday 7th July, between 11am and 4pm.

Why not come along to explore the Wildlife Zone and Wood Zone, join in with a yoga or meditation session and have a go at all the craft activities?

The dog show is always popular – could yours be the winner? How fast can your dog go down the bale run?

You can enter the Heartwood Bake-Off with your decorated cake and bring your teddy along to the Teddy Bear’s Picnic.

More details will follow soon, but in the meantime, make sure that you save the date!
