On Wednesday October 25th families are invited to take part in an autumn adventure at Lower Smite Farm.

The county’s largest conservation charity, Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, will be running autumnal activities for children aged 5 to 12. From making salt dough hedgehogs to building a campfire, there will be lots to do in the two hour session.

Autumn Adventures (c) Neil WhiteRae Howard-Louvaine, Senior Engagement Officer for Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, explained “Autumn is such a beautiful season and we’d like to help families to get outside, enjoy the colours and celebrate our natural world.

“It’s a great time of year to learn how to identify wildlife footprints in muddy parts of the farm as well as gathering round a campfire and enjoying being outside.

“We’ll be focusing on hedgehogs – how they’re preparing for winter and how we can all do something to help them at home. Children will even have the chance to make their own hedgehog from salt dough.”

Lower Smite Farm is a 65 hectare working farm with a nature trail that helps visitors to discover ponds, an orchard, a wildlife garden and a range of farm habitats.

The activities will run between 2pm and 4pm and cost just £3.50 per child to enter. Booking is essential on 01905 454919 or email Rae.

A pop-up cafe will be running from 1.30pm until 4.30pm selling cakes and refreshments.
