Nature Trail at Stoneywell

The cottage at Stoneywell in snow

Winter is a great time to of year to create a nature journal as you track down evidence left by wildlife. This February half term set off on a winter journey, to see what wildlife is around Stoneywell this time of year.

Running from the 16 to 24 February, this brand new trail involves you helping us to identify some unexpected visitors who have been to Stoneywell over the winter and left behind some intriguing evidence. Your first port of call is the stables, to pick up your nature journal, before heading off around the grounds to find some clues. If you follow them correctly, you will discover who has been at Stoneywell (and of course, claim your prize too!).

As it is still quite wintery out there, when a lot of little creatures are still finding cosy spots to shelter in, you can also make your very own nature home to take home with you.
