Woodland Spring Open Day

SUNDAY 23rd APRIL, 10am-3pm

Birchanger Wood Spring Open Day on Sunday 23rd April will have a range of activities for the whole community! It’s completely free to attend, although donations are gratefully received. Read on to find out more about what we have planned:

Pond Dipping

Find out what is in our new pond! Tadpoles aplenty and much more to discover in the depths. Just mind Toby the duck! 

Woodturning Demonstration 

East Herts Woodturners will be demonstrating their remarkable woodturning skills. Visitors can buy their wares made from wood sourced from Birchanger Wood, including Harry Potter wands, bowls, candlesticks, cheese boards, light pulls and pens. 

Jono’s Bug Hunt 

Local naturalist and educator Jono Forgham will be running woodland events throughout the day. This will include him carrying out a bug hunt, a butterfly walk and dissecting owl pellets to see what their diet consists of. 

Stone Painting 

Have fun painting stones which you can take home or placed in nooks and crannies around the woods for others to find and relocate. 


Take an orienteering map and find the hidden waypoints around the woods. A great way to explore the woods and learn little more about the wonderful flowers and trees that grow here.

Find us at our compound just off Heath Row, next to the water tower. Everyone welcome!
