Nature Walk – Footprints

On a cold, sunny morning a few weeks ago, we met at the Woodlands Community Garden for a nature walk about footprints. Sarah, their biodiversity expert, read us a themed story to get things started

It was fun to walk in the bright autumn sun with a group of friends and rustle through the leaves.

The cards were concealed in bushes, on posts, on trees. Our trail even allowed us a play in a play park. We found some human, dog, cat and bird prints in the sand there and later in some concrete

and some friendly cats in a window.
