On Thursday 13th April choose from:

Flora and Fauna Workshop at 11.30am

Our Flora and Fauna workshop has been designed to give children a sense of wonder and respect for the natural environment using the setting of the Wells estate. Under the supervision of our leaders, the children work together in teams and will experience the gardens and the natural world. The workshops include tasks and fun learning games to complete during the woodland walk and we then compare all our findings, in the arts and crafts time when the child will choose to decorate either a bug house/bird house or create their own nature collage to take home.

This workshop is designed to connect children with nature and the environment and develop their ‘green time’. Outdoor education is important- it may help concentration and memory. Children gain a sense of wonder and respect for the natural environment.

Duration: 1 hour

Cost: €10

Join us this Easter for a fun and educational workshop for older children (aged 8+) to learn about the ancient art of falconry and meet our new Harris Hawks & Goshawk, Sheabhag, Hafoc and Gara in the stunning setting of Wells House and Gardens.
