Event description
A day in the woods in search of one of the UK's most rare and elusive mammals, the Pine Marten!

About this event

An opportunity not to be missed!

Pine Marten expert and all-round mammal enthusiast, Stuart Edmunds, will be showing Young Rangers how to search for tracks and signs and how to use camera traps to (fingers crossed!) record Pine Marten activity in the woods.

Toni Pettitt, from Branching Out Forest School will also be joining us for more hands-on action. Expect sticky fingers (and muddy knees!), making Pine Marten feeders to locate in the woods.

As usual, YR's are asked to bring their own packed lunch and provisions for the day and to come prepared in warm, waterproof outdoor clothing and sensible footwear.

The activity will be in Shropshire's great outdoors and in a remote location in Clunton Coppice. Participants with easier access needs may like to enquire for further advice/information.

*First-time attendees are asked to complete the Young Rangers registration form here and a parent/carer is welcome to attend if children need additional support*
