  • Why not take part in natural art classes where you use natural materials and a dash of imagination to create wonderful sculptures in the Arboretum
  • Join in the ‘Waking the Forest’ musical workshops which is an exciting rhythm based activity that helps recreate the atmosphere of the forest
  • Make a spooky spider finger puppet in time for Halloween
  • You can even come along to plant an acorn that you can watch grow into a tree in your own garden
