There has been a lot of recent activity at Aldouran on several fronts. We are now an independent charity and have plans to improve and develop the Aldouran experience. This includes making a new gateway, new paths and an environmental sculpture trail.
At present the garden is flourishing and includes many new plants, a lovely new bench and a wishing well under construction.
A Mallard duck has successfully reared four ducklings on the pond and woodpeckers and red squirrels are amongst the species viewed from the observation hide.
We have held two Wildlife Wonders sessions this summer where we invite children to come along and take part in activities such as pond dipping, stone painting, woodland art, hide building, bird and general wildlife activities all led by wildlife experts.
