Discover more about the natural environment, what lives there and what it leaves behind as you walk the grounds at Avon Tyrrell looking for signs of animals and wildlife.

Discover deer, rabbits, birds of prey and squirrels and use your identification sheet to record what you find.

Our Strawbale Classroom can then be used to discuss what you have found and view items that have been previously found and collected including; antlers, furs, skulls and owl pellets.

Interactive games may be used to further extend knowledge.
