After enjoying a drink and cake on the veranda of Tarn House a minibus shuttle will be provided to return you to your car, unless of course you want to keep walking and complete the circuit!

Please note: this is a 6km walk over sometimes rough & uneven ground and as such is not suitable for pushchairs or people with limited mobility. If you are unsure if this activity is appropriate for you or your family please call the centre on 01729 830331.

Tuesday 29th October – Snap, Crackle & Pop(corn)

Meet at FSC Malham Tarn (BD24 9PU) for a day of shelter building, fire lighting and other bushcraft themed activities. After collecting twigs and making our own fire we will cook popcorn outside and enjoy the warmth of our (hopefully!) dry & cosy shelters.

Wednesday 30th October – Bugs, Birds and Beasties

Meet at FSC Malham Tarn (BD24 9PU) and explore the plants, animals and other organisms that make the Yorkshire Dales such an interesting and magical place. We will be looking underground, overground and into water to see what we can find lurking, and we will also learn how to make our gardens more inviting for wildlife along the way.
