On Saturday April 16th 2016 Epping Forest Field Centre opened its doors to over 100 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and their leaders for a Growing Up Wild day of exploration and adventure. Growing Up Wild is a 3 year initiative for members of LASER (London and South East England Girlguiding) to connect with and embrace their natural environment. There are 17 ‘Paw Prints’ in total that act as badges to collect. It is all about inspiring girls to get outdoors in all seasons and discovering something new in their local area, so Epping Forest – a wonderful place to discover and learn – is the perfect location. This short article reports on the day.
