Where Wild Things Play!


Summer's here and what better to do with your time then get out and explore Herefordshire’s beautiful countryside! Who better to explore with than your family and Herefordshire Nature Trust’s Where Wild Things Play project! Become poets in the woods in Ledbury, brave the dragons of Mordiford, picnic on Bromyard Downs or make your own explorer’s kit at Ross-on-Wye … just a few of the wild nature activities to join in on. Also, be sure not to miss our series of Trail-Tastic adventures.
