Do you live or work with a child or young person who is living with, or at risk of, poor emotional wellbeing?

The Services for Young People Go Wild at Hudnall project is offering free sessions at Hudnall Park this Easter, thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund and in partnership with Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

The events are a great way to have fun, meet other people, learn about nature and new ways to help improve emotional wellbeing.

Each session has a different theme and most sessions require the child or young person to be accompanied by their parents/carers. There is one drop-off session for young people aged 13 to 17. 

Please see details of the events on offer below.

This session is for 13 – 17s accompanied by their parents/carers and younger siblings are also welcome.

Wrap up warm and join us for an evening at Hudnall Park to discover creatures that come out after dark! We’ll be going on a walk detecting bats along the way, then sitting quietly with a mug of hot chocolate to watch for badgers, and finally gathering around the moth trap to observe moths up close!

Calling all creative young people! Bring your imagination and artistic flair to Hudnall Park this Easter to bring our favourite children’s books to life! Choose from a variety of art media and natural materials to create storytelling props themed around the Gruffalo. Your creations will be used to inspire magic and joy in other children and young people who come to visit.

Easter egg hunt
