Discover Hedgehogs Event

We are super excited to announce that Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary and Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust will be in partnership offering a host of hedgehog discovery events for you to attend during 2019.

Learn basic hedgehog facts – where they live, what they eat, the problems facing hedgehogs and why they’re in decline. Receive practical advice about how to help hedgehogs in your garden. Find out about basic hedgehog care and handling.

Meet a rescue hog (if one is available and happy to be handled) and see where they are being nursed back to health before being released.

This workshop is aimed at families - we are also offering adult-only workshops all through the spring and summer.

Please note these are special organised events/visits and Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary is not open to the general public.


£8 for adults (over 16)

£6 for children

Suitable for adults and children aged 6-16. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
