Please wear long trousers and stout shoes even if it is hot as this will help protect you from scratches, stings and ticks. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting muddy!

Car parking is included in the ticket price. Please park in the Forest Centre car park.

Sorry, no dogs at this event please as we will be located in the education area.

In the event of bad weather, the event will still go ahead as we will have access to the Education Barn at the Visitor Centre. We will still go for a walk so please bring wet weather clothing.
