The Mole Valley provides many superb and diverse wildlife habitats. Discover the amazing animals that live under our noses. River dipping, minibeast hunts, small mammal trapping, walking.

There is a wide range of possible activities on this family wildlife course and the programme will be tailored as closely as possible to the interests of the families present. You might go river dipping, sampling invertebrates in the leaf litter or go for a nature walk in the beautiful countryside around Box Hill. You will set small mammal traps to get a close-up look at the creatures living in the grounds of Juniper Hall before releasing them back into their natural habitats.

The course is suitable for families with children aged 4 – 8 years. Please note: You will be sharing a room with just you and your family.
