The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country are inviting families to go Wild in the Woods every Wednesday in Peascroft Wood during the summer holidays.

Two hours of fun are planned for each session and families can just drop in, with no need to book. Wild in the Woods will run from 11am-1pm, and will be filled with fun learning activities aimed at children between 4 and 11 years of age. The purpose of these days is to engage children with nature and their local environment, as well as getting to know the local woods better.

Reserve Officer Alison Wilkes will be leading a number of exciting family activities and games to show the possibilities of this beautiful nature reserve. She says: “Going wild in the woods should be what summer holidays are all about and we want to help children rediscover the joy of playing in and learning about woodlands.

“Building dens, making natural crafts and learning together with other children are great ways to build confidence, learn new skills and engage with wildlife. We hope lots of people will come along and take advantage of these free summer activities”.

Wild in the Woods is part of a 3-year project funded by the Heritage Lottery to improve the access to and increase usage of Peascroft Wood.

Anyone wishing to ask more about these activities, or get involved with volunteering at Peascroft Wood should email Alison Wilkes alison.w@bbcwildlife.org.uk or call 0121 454 1199.
