There are so many trees, why not make a little educational trip. get your little ones a book or worksheet and help them identify the trees you find.



The open areas lend themselves to a bit of bird watching.  This kit contains everything you need to take your family bird watching, including bird identifcation cards and binoculars.

There are also some lovely nature trails. Allowing your little ones to go bug hunting under logs and in the leaves.
