The Ecology Centre runs a scheme of environmental themed activities in the summer, Easter and half-term holidays for five to ten year olds (under eights must be accompanied by an adult). These activities utilise the centre and our wooded wildlife area. Our fun packed programme includes outdoor activities like shelter building and orienteering and animal themed craft sessions.
