The activities will run from 11am - 3pm on the following dates:

They are being led by the Trust’s ‘Explorers’ education team who aim to educate children all about the wildlife of their local canals, as well as how to enjoy them safely.

Elaine Stanley, Canal & River Trust education volunteer co-ordinator, said: “Stoke Bruerne is a really beautiful part of the Grand Union Canal and a great place to visit for a family day out away from the hustle and bustle.

“During the summer, the canal is alive with all kinds of colourful boats and wildlife and is a perfect location to spend some time. Our education team are experts in bringing to life the ecology, history and science of the 200-year old waterways, so I’d encourage anyone with a family looking for an interesting day out to come along."

There is no need to book - just turn up.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing. All equipment will be provided.
