Save event

Our local Children's University is giving a lecture in Plymbridge Woods with a session by Alison Smith from the Plymouth Woodland Project. 

Join us to spot the signs of spring at Plymbridge Woods. Learn to identify spring flowers and trees, and take part in our spring nature trail (with Easter egg prizes). You will also have a chance to help with a real study to find out about how climate change might be affecting the timing of spring, and make your own bird box for nesting birds.

The event is for young people aged 5 to 14 years (all children must be accompanied by an adult). 

Children should arrive in the National Trust car park at 9.50am.

Spaces are limited so booking is essential.

About the Children's University

The Children's University is a national initiative, which is run locally by Plymouth City Council with the help of local organisations, Plymouth University, businesses and individuals. Children can go to different learning lectures and activities outside of school hours through the programme. For every event they attend, they get time stamped into their learning passports, which they save up to earn bronze, silver and gold certificates.

Children are presented with their qualifications at a 'graduation ceremony' held annually to celebrate their achievements. Learning passports can be bought at the lecture, from participating schools or from any Plymouth City Council library for £2.
