All sessions are based at Hilsea Lines. The Lines provide a wealth of resources for play, learning and discovery.  However, I am able to bring my equipment and resources to you if required.

Exploring Nature activities and experiences include:



Why should children have all the fun?  My monthly themed adult sessions allow grown-ups to come along and enjoy being outdoors in the forest, meet other like-minded people and learn new skills.



An opportunity for you to slow down and immerse yourself in the healing powers of nature and relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life.



Do something different for that special occasion.  Leave your phones at home and come to the forest to chill out, socialise with friends and learn a new skill.



Do some team bonding away from the office and get involved with some hands-on learning in the great outdoors. Have fun, learn new skills and improve your physical and mental health and wellbeing.  Go back to your workplace with a fresh perspective.


I am planning on restarting my regular Forest School groups following the February half term which is 15th – 19th February 2021. I’m also planning on running some one-off child and family sessions during the half term. I have some vouchers available to purchase for groups and events if you are looking to buy locally for Christmas.

Obviously, all of these events/groups will be governed by restrictions in place at the time, which none of us will know until nearer the time.  However, I firmly believe we all need something to look forward to and what could be better than spending a couple of stress-free hours in the woods getting plenty of fresh air and exercise and having loads of fun?

As an ethical enterprise, I would like to reassure anyone that makes a purchase for an event or a group that I will endeavour to run that group or event within the government guidance at the time. However, if the regulations make it impossible to run the group or event, I would initially try to reschedule the session at a mutually convenient time for both of us or, if this wasn’t possible, I could hold that money in lieu of a future event or refund you in full.


Our Testimonials

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

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!

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.

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.
