Are you aged 11-14 years and mad about all things wildlife? Join our Youth Explorers group to learn more about nature in MK!

This course takes place every Tuesday night from the 9th June to 7th July and runs from 5:30 – 7:30pm.

Not only will you will have lots of amazing memories to take away, you will also receive a certificate upon completion. After Explorers you might wish to consider one of our Youth Ranger courses for 14-18 year olds.
