Young explorers are invited to go wild in the woods on a special Woodland Trust Easter trail in Monkstown Wood on Saturday, April 13.

Young Nature Detectives invited to crack the clues of the Monkstown Wood Easter Trail

Monkstown Wood is a hidden haven straddling a small river and boasting kingfishers, damselflies and even otters.

On the weekend before Easter, The Woodland Trust team will be there to set young adventurers off on a nature trail to search for hidden clues scattered throughout the woodland. Having completed the woodland adventure, they will each be rewarded with a tasty Easter treat. They’ll then get the chance to sculpt and build a birdfeeder to take home.
