Family Explorers: Bug Hunt

Get ready - we're going on a Bug Hunt!

You'll be guided by Conservation Ranger, Sila, through the woodland areas of the Gardens to discover the fascinating world of bugs! From woodlice and millipedes hiding under logs to beetles and spiders nestled in cracks of tree bark, and bees and butterflies feasting on nectar-rich flowers, there's a whole ecosystem waiting to be explored!
