Our focus for the evening
Somersham Local Nature Reserve (LNR) is a wonderful example of how nature reclaims places if left alone. This is part of the railway line from Cambridge to March, built in 1848 for the transport of coal and agricultural produce before closing in 1967. The 12 hectares site is home to a wide variety of wildlife and includes areas of woodland, grassland and wildflower meadows, a lake and wet woodland. The spring term network will give you the opportunity to explore the LNR with a group of like-minded professionals. As always, we will light a fire, the kettle will be boiling and you will be able to use the natural resources available to create inspiring Forest School experiences that can be recreated in your setting. Please be prepared to share your skills and learn from others!
