Each volunteer-led session has a different theme where we explore some aspect of the natural world or heritage of the reserve. For example, we have taken part in citizen science projects such as the Big Butterfly Count and the UK ladybird survey. Most sessions also have a craft activity such as making a pine cone bird feeder or a wormery to take home. Older children have the opportunity in taking part in more complex investigations such as the OPAL worm project and also take part in conservation management activities in the wood. For example, some of our older Rangers have helped to build a giant wormery, which is also a good habitat for stag beetle larvae.

We feel strongly that children should be connected to nature and care about their local environment. We also know how important it is for children to enjoy time outdoors, especially in an environment that is relatively wild, but also so close to urban life.
