A new urban edition to Forest School Adventure!

Venture out to your local greenspace or just into your back yard, and try the amazing array of outdoor activities - from building a hidden sheet den to creating watering stations for bees.

While you are there, scavenge and forage for raw materials and then extend the fun with creative makes and recipes to do back at home such as leaf printing, stick boats and stinging nettle crisps. Get to know the wild parts of your city or town with handy bug, plant and tree ID sections, plus a scavenger hunt and cloud-spotting game that can be done when out and about. Games to play with organized groups or with your family and friends adds another dimension to this book that is bursting with ideas for urban outdoor adventures.
