Looking for a family adventure? Are your children aged between 5 - 12 years old? Join us at Nature Explorers for a programme jam-packed with fun, learning and outdoor play.

Our sessions are designed to boost your child's confidence in nature and help them build skills for life.Let your kids just be kids as you learn about how the reserve has gone from a coal face to a wild place, and how you can help nature at home.

From building bug hotels to discovering what lurks at RSPB Fairburn Ings after dark, there's something for everyone!
