Watch outdoor learning in action!
Our quiet, beautiful fresh water habitat is the nursery for nearly every insect you can think of. Learn about the food webs that link everything together.
Beneath the logs and leaves, explore the wondrous variety of creepy crawlies! From the leopard slug to the millipedes and centipedes – it’s a magical mini-world!
A Day at The Bay
The Dover area is steeped in history. This coastal site overlooks the English Channel has been of great strategic importance from Roman times right through to WW2.
Learn to light a fire without matches. Collect kindling from the woods and strike a light with a flint and steel.
