Summer Fun at the Nature Explorers Play Scheme

The wilds of Birches Valley Forest on Cannock Chase provided the natural environment for young ‘Nature Explorers.’ They forage in the forest, search for insects, created wildlife arts and crafts, make model rafts, and enjoyed a spot of pond dipping.

The week-long summer play scheme for 8-11 year olds had been organised by Rugeley Power Station’s Education Team since 2003.

Our final Play scheme Event was held in 2015. Unfortunately Rugeley Power Station is no longer able to provide this facility.

Tanglewood www.tanglewooddays.com an Outdoor Learning and Play Company are currently looking into setting up Nature Explorers in 2016. If you are interested in attending or would like to volunteer during the week of the scheme please contact Katie at Katie@tanglewooddays.com or call her on 07989 492768.
