Family Backpack Walk

Families at Bedgebury visitor centre.Schoolchildren love our mapstick walks.  Now families can also enjoy a fun hands-on learning walk in the Pinetum. 

Simply visit the Bedgebury Information Office, pay £3.00 per sack, leave your keys as a deposit and be back before the office closes.  Ask for the red bag - which contains a picture guide book, binoculars, a magnifying glass and a bark rubbing kit.

Come back another time to try the extra science acticvites in the green bag or the extra maths activities in the blue bag.

This project is now featured on the BGEN (Botanic Gardens Education Network) website as an example of inspiring plant-based learning.

England's Woods and Forests are cared for by Forest Enterprise England, an agency of the Forestry Commission.
