This session is designed to give pupils an overview of some of the different habitats that can be found in the National Park, and how we protect them. Taking place on site at Walltown Country Park, pupils can safely explore three different types of habitat – woodland, pond and meadow.

This is a hands-on activity where children look for and see close up the invertebrates as well as the reptiles, birds and mammals that live in each of these habitats, and understand how these creatures are adapted to live there. The session will be led by two of our Rangers with activities including pond dipping, sweep netting and mini beast hunt.

You can top up your visit to a full day free of charge, by further exploring The Sill building or Walltown using our resource boxes and trails. There are spaces available in The Sill for groups to have lunch, which can be booked as part of your visit.
