This will will be a forest and an ode to the coming of spring!
We will have a spring scavenger hunt that will get us moving around the beautiful arboretum, spotting the delights it has to offer. We'll get busy making bird feeders to help our flighty friends through the last bit of winter and we will need to practice our fire lighting skills to get our campfire roaring so we can cook up a hot treat.
To add to the excitement we always have bug hunting and den building. All rounded off with a snack, drink and some spring-time inspired stories around the campfire.

All participants must bring a packed lunch. Sessions take place in all weather so appropriate clothing is essential.
Tortworth Forest Centre is based at Tortworth Arboretum, Wotton-Under-Edge, a historically and culturally rich woodland in South Gloucestershire.
The arboretum is a 20 acre site once owned by the Ducie family and part of the original Tortworth Estate. The arboretum trees were planted by the third Earl of Ducie, Henry John Moreton, from 1853 onwards, complementing the existing ancient trees spread across the Tortworth Estate parkland. He continued this until his death in 1921.
The arboretum is currently being lovingly restored for community use by Tortworth Forest Centre.
