Activity: Habitat walk
Anglesey I Delamere I Burwardsley
A walk in the woods looking at animal habitats and homes, such as squirrel dreys and badger setts, and other points of interest, as well as developing the skills necessary to tackle streams, mud, steep hills and other ‘obstacles’.
With agreed access to areas of Delamere Forest, children will be instantly immersed in habitats diverse in nature.
At Burwardsley we can walk over Bulkeley Hill and hear the story of the witches, or for a shorter walk we can climb Willow Hill right next to the centre and build dens or jungle camps on top.
