Moors Valley Country Park, near Ringwood is running family-friendly events through the summer.
The packed programme includes bushcraft, cycling, fishing and plenty of opportunities to get hands-on with nature.
Special events include an evening visit from the Mizan Travellling Planetarium on Tuesday 25 August, a Twilight Safari 26 August and a BioBlitz on 13 August.
‘Wildlife Wednesdays’ will run all summer featuring a different activity every week. With guest appearances from a range of experts, Wildlife Wednesdays will include a spider walk, small mammal trapping and a bee walk, providing the perfect opportunity to get the whole family interested in the natural world.
As well as events, there is plenty to keep the whole family happy and entertained at Moors Valley. The park is home to a miniature steam railway, Go Ape’s Tree Top junior course, and a play trail featuring exciting play sculptures as well as playgrounds, cycle hire and acres of forest and meadow to explore. Until September the park is also hosting the Superworm Trail. Perfect for younger children, this self-guided activity trail is based on the popular children’s character from Julia Donaldson’s book and trail packs include a copy of a limited edition Superworm mini-book to enjoy as you stroll around the Moors Valley Lake.
