Going for gold this autumn in Woodland Trust woods
Get outdoors this autumn and visit the Woodland Trust’s top locations to take in spectacular autumn colour. Woods are great places for a day out with the children, to watch nature up close or get fit and healthy.
Whilst visiting autumn woods make a note of the first signs of autumn; from berries ripening to leaves changing colour, to leaf fall. By recording this information on Nature’s Calendar it will help scientists observe how the changing climate is affecting the UK’s plants and wildlife.
We also have thousands of great ideas on Nature Detectives for activities that you can use to entertain the kids both indoors and out during the autumn. From spotter sheets, games, crafts and recipes, families won’t be short of things to do – all for free!
We’ve picked out a few of the best autumn woods across the country, but there’s many more. To find your nearest autumn wood visit woodlandtrust.org.uk/visiting-woods
