As part of our ongoing commitment to
education and outdoor learning we are delighted to offer
a free* entry ticket to the 2013 Wild About Wood
Festival to every child from
participating primary schools in North Yorkshire, East
Yorkshire and the City of York.
Children will have the opportunity to learn about
traditional woodland skills such as hurdle making and
pole-lathe turning from our resident craftspeople, and
then get "hands-on" with our Discovery Zone activities
including pond-dipping, explorienteering, arboretum art,
coracle rides... and much more!
If you would like to register your school for this
initiative please send us an email
here, including the name and address of your school,
a contact name and telephone number, and the number of
pupils at your school. The closing date for applications
is Friday 19th July 2013.
In early September we'll send you a free entry voucher
for each child at your school. All you have to do is
give each child a voucher to take home. It's that
And why not download our optional
pre-festival activity worksheets? These can be
undertaken in your school grounds or a local green space
and are a great way to get children to think about trees
and wood before they visit the festival. There will also
be post-festival worksheets available for download
nearer the time.
