We’ve been teased with warmer days, and school is almost done for another term; the scene is set. Local National Trust places are setting up their unique ‘Easter adventures in nature’ trails. Families of all ages are invited to head out around the gardens and landscapes of Yorkshire, make nature discoveries, have a go at the challenges and collect a Rainforest Alliance chocolate egg at the end.

At the start of the trail, pick up your activity pack with a map and details of the bespoke adventure, pencil, and chocolate egg at the end. Trails cost £3 per participant, unless otherwise stated, and will be available whilst stocks last.
