Family & Days Out Give-Aways

The Woodland Trust #NatureDetectives

What do you know about the Woodland Trust? If you were anything like me a few weeks ago, your answer may be very little. It turns out that they’re fabulous and fun once you find out a bit more, so I thought I’d share a little about them today with you.

The Woodland Trust is Britain’s largest charity protecting our woodland and the wildlife that lives there. Over 250 of our most threatened species depend on our native woods for their survival. Yet in the past 70 years, more than half of our ancient woodland has been destroyed.

They are all about inspiring people to get out and enjoy the woodlands around them, helping to preserve them, and campaigning to protect them.

To engage youngsters, for children aged 9 and under there are the Nature Detectives

The Nature Detectives part of the website is a lot of fun, and well worth a look around. It’s packed with activity ideas and suggestions, and I like how it’s divided up into three age ranges, the 0-2s, 3-5s and 6+. They also have a blog with practical tips, how-tos and checklists. You cannot fail to be inspired to get outside after having a browse, and the plan is for the kids and I to make a list of the activities that we’d like to try, and get busy with them over the school holidays.

You can also now take out a Family Membership with the Woodland Trust, which entitles you to:

Children
Membership to Nature Detectives.
A Nature Detectives welcome folder and activity booklet, plus bookmark, nature passport and stickers.
New seasonal activity pack four times a year posted to each Nature Detective, and weekly Facebook challenges.
Different packs for different ages.
Grown-ups
A tree dedicated to you in your nearest Woodland Trust wood.
A unique guide to native British trees.
Directory of Woodland Trust woods to discover.
Two copies of our Broadleaf and The Woods Today magazines each year.
Emails with details of activities, events and lots more.

Membership costs from £5 per month. Your membership fee goes towards protecting the countryside, providing homes for endangered animals and planting millions of trees.

We are awaiting our membership packs now, and Boo’s already eager to take a look at her activity pack. I’ll be sharing with you more about the packs and how we get on with our first adventures here shortly. You can easily find your nearest wood, using the finder tool over on their website. We have plenty near us to choose from, so we’ll be setting off soon!

Competitions

To celebrate the launch of the family memberships, I have a Woodland Trust goody bag to give away to one of lucky readers. The bag includes an award winning notepad, a shopping bag, a swatch book, a jigsaw and a mug….
