New FSC Website launches on 15th October

We are in the process of redeveloping this website and plan to launch the new site on 15 October.

Visitors that book and pay for courses on the new site will have to re-register.

However, rest assured that if you book on the current site before 15 October your payment and booking details will be captured and processed.

We apologise for this inconvenience but are convinced you will find the new site much easier to use.

This weekend wildlife course is intended for families with children aged between 4-8 years who wish to expand their knowledge of natural history. What better way to do this than in the idyllic rural setting of Juniper Hall, a peaceful country house close to Box Hill? 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 you may 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. Activities include: River Dipping, Minibeast Hunts, Small Mammal Trapping, Walking. (Activity sites may be a short walk away)

Lou Hilderley is an experienced and popular tutor at FSC with specialist knowledge of working with children. In addition, Lou is actively involved with Scouting activities and has experience of Makaton.
