For young explorers
If you're planning a visit why not bring some paper and wax crayons to make some bark rubbings, bring a magnifying glass to take a closer look at the leaves, branches and bark, or collect things you find along the trail to make a nature picture when you get home? As you explore the trees on the walk please try not to disturb any wildlife you come across, and 'leave no trace' of the fun you've had.
