Hainault Forest Nature Detectives

Join us for a mission in the forest! At this family-friendly event, young detectives can hunt for clues in the ancient woodland.

Look for signs of life in the ancient woodland, using spotter sheets to search for butterflies, minibeasts and trees. Test your problem-solving expertise along the way with exciting activities.

The meeting point is the Woodland Trust Visitor Centre, located just beyond the second car park in Hainault Forest.

This event is designed for children aged six to 12 years old.

Booking in advance is essential. Please email [email protected] to reserve your space.
