From Friday 3 October 2014, families will have the opportunity to go on a forest adventure with Mouse as the Gruffalo’s Child activity trails come to 24 forests and woods across England.
Impressive displays of vibrant autumn hues are expected if weather conditions remain consistent over the coming weeks, according to Forestry Commission England.
A new app-based field guide from the Forestry Commission has been launched to help identify almost 100 tree and shrub seedlings under one year old that are commonly found in British woods and forests.
From 3 October 2014 until February 2015*, self-led Gruffalo’s Child activity trails will be located in 24 Forestry Commission forests across England, continuing the nationwide celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the book’s publication.
Will autumn come early this year? Forestry Commission England has offered its leaf-peeping advice for top trees to monitor for the first signs.
