This year’s Spring Trail Festival, packed with more than 30 events and activities for you to enjoy throughout the Tamar Valley, is booking up fast, so organisers from the Tamar Valley AONB team are advising you to book soon to avoid disappointment.
There are still some places available on Exploring Nature (Friday 5th April, 1:00pm – 4:00pm). Join bird expert Richard Hibbert on the Tamar Trails, near Gulworthy, for an exciting afternoon of exploration, discovering what is living under your feet and high up in trees, why leaves are green and how many legs your favourite bug has. Enjoy shelter building, bug hunting, animal tracking, bird calling, and much more. £5 per child, plus £2 parking for the day. Booking is essential on this event – 01822 835030, firstname.lastname@example.org
