The Parks Trust Youth Explorers (11-14 year olds)

    Youth Explorers (11-14 years old)

    Youth Explorer Courses are for young people aged 11-14 years old to help them gain experience and valuable practical skills in various outdoor topics, including wildlife identification, bushcraft and conservation. We will tackle different skillsets and tasks each week, with practical applications to the wildlife of Linford Lakes Nature Reserve, whilst having loads of fun and making friends with like-minded people in the process.

    Each group will meet for 2 hours every Wednesday night for 5 weeks. Youth Explorers costs just £20 for a 5-week course!
