Some animals hibernate over the winter, this means that they go into a very deep, sleep-like state to preserve energy.
Follow the path through the woods to learn about all the different animals that hibernate and what they need to do to prepare.
As you go, collect twigs, sticks, rocks and leaves to add to our collection at the Mill. These will be used to fill up our brand new bug hotel and habitat pile.
- Meeting point
- The trail starts by the morden bridge at the beginning of the path to Cotehele Mill.
- What to bring and wear
- The path can get muddy so make sure you wear your wellies or walking boots!
- This trail does not contain steps and is relatively flat, however it may be muddy and uneven in places.
- Avoid picking up natural piles of sticks or leaves as these may already be being used by wildlife.
