Kids native traveller experience (Walk ref 6)

Saturday 05 Oct 10am

A native tribe passed through the woods and stashed corn for us to eat. Follow the story they left behind to navigate along their trail and find the corn.  Examine the woods closely to find objects to add to your 'journey stick' which will tell the tale of your travels. We'll travel to our base camp and pop our corn over the campfire.Young children (under 3 years) would be welcome and free of charge, however there will be a walk of a little under 2 miles in woodland so not easy for buggies, you would have to be prepared to carry your little ones!
