We are not open to the public but you can book an educational and awareness group visit to Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary or we can come to you at your school, organised group, conference, or event. Ideal for groups such as the beavers, cubs, scouts, brownies, rainbows, girlguiding, etc...

Please read the IMPORTANT visit notes towards the bottom of this page!

Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary is extensively active in promoting ways people can help hedgehogs and spreading awareness of the troubles wild hedgehogs face. The Charity hosts nearly 100 Hedgehog Educational and Awareness talks annually. As of April 2021 nearly 6,000 children and adults have attended these talks.

Partnership talks such as those with The Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust are also hosted at the Sanctuary. External talks typically include local schools, community groups, other wildlife trusts and groups, along with corporate functions.

As of December 2021 the money raised from Educational & Awareness Talks specifically, will go towards the wage of one employee.
