This week, Cubs took advantage of the lighter evenings and headed to the heath to start work on their naturalist badge. Despite some initial worries, Cubs soon got very involved in finding and identifying caterpillars, plants, beetles and trees. We were also lucky enough to spot some blue tits nesting in a tree.
Cubs were set a challenge to create the Fleur de Lys using things they found in the woods. Each six created their own (some did two) and we think they did a great job!
As part of the naturalist badge, Cubs learned some of the rules of the Countryside Code, so before we left they made sure we left no trace of our visit.
Thank you to all the parent volunteers who made the visit possible!
