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.
