Junior Rangers' Club

The Junior Rangers’ Club is a fun way for youngsters to learn more about wildlife and the great outdoors.

With a whole range of exciting events from mini beast hunts to orienteering, children can learn survival skills, enjoy art activities and get active.

Led by our Countryside Rangers the club welcomes children from 5 to 12 years of age - under 8s must be accompanied by an adult. All sessions are free.
