Nature Hideaway Kit


Can you become a nature detective? Spot animal trails, learn bird calls, watch how the seasons alter the outdoor world around you - and learn the skill of den-building. Build your very own hide, using natural frame and screening, camouflage netting, a waterproof tarpaulin and your own imaginative and ingenious mind.

Snuggle into your secret shelter with your spotter-sheet & monocular and spy on the birds, animals and mini-beasts that share your space.

*For a limited period. A minimum of £2000 will be given to the National Trust through the sale of this product.
