Our Horizon - a space to share ideas

While the island is closed to visitors, we thought we'd bring it to you and share a few free ideas for those who are suddenly with school kids at home.

Watch this space for some fun nature-based activities. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to connect with the island rangers on conservation related ideas that can keep kids inspired. Many you can implement in your own garden.
