Gruffalo Orienteering

Bedgebury Gruffalo 2014

Children up to eight years old taking part in Children’s University can use a simple map to try and find twelve Gruffalo markers, and answer the question related to each marker in the Gruffalo orienteering leaflet. Courses are sited at Delamere Forest, Chester; Bedgebury Pinetum, Tunbridge Wells and Birches Valley, Cannock.

The Gruffalo orienteering leaflet with certificate and course map is available to buy from the forest for £1.50. Complete the course and send your answer to question 13, describe the Gruffalo, with your name, age and the name of the forest you visited to and the Forestry Commission will send you a 1 hour stamp.
