WELCOME TO
OUR WEBSITE

Working in agreement with Portsmouth City Council, I am based at Hilsea Lines delivering high-quality educational activities and outdoor experiences.

My aim is to get people of all ages and backgrounds out into the woods, enjoying and noticing nature and the world around them and consequently feeling the benefits socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.

Any profit from my activities will be reinvested in the enterprise with the aim of making all sessions and activities accessible to all.

Exploring Nature is a social enterprise helping children, families, adults and communities in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas to reconnect with nature.

Weekly Forest School sessions for children and young people of all ages.  These are learner centred, tailored programmes based on observations of individual needs and desires.

Our Testimonials

Session was fun and it was good to be in the outdoors as well as in a caring environment.

Kim R

Exploring Nature Group is a highlight of our week. The children gain so much from having this time learning outside, they enjoy joining in with the games and activities with their group. Even in the coldest winter sessions as soon as the fire is lit it all feels worth it!

Gemma H

A lovely morning spent making reindeers and memories. Well organised and explained by Sharon. Would definitely recommend and not just for festive fun. Thank you.

Deb N

Fun couple of hours making a reindeer and tree decoration out of wood and twigs today - pure escapism. Festive refreshments, with a campfire to warm through the mulled wine and mince pies. Well organised- thoroughly recommend.
