Meet the people at the Woodland Trust who run nature detectives
Danielle Evans - chief nature detective
Danielle joined nature detectives in 2008 and took over from founding member Shaun at the start of 2010. Her favourite part of the job is making fun stuff to inspire kids and adults about the outdoors - it's even better to hear people say it's fun when they do it!
"We had a big garden at home and when we were kids we used to spend all our time in it - getting muddy, treasure hunting, making dens, potions and all sorts of silly stuff.
They're some of my favourite memories and this is where lots of my ideas come from!"
Rowan (because of the teethy leaves and colourful red berries)
Fungi trump cards (because they're ingenious, great fun and you can even stick them in your pocket to identify fungi when you're out and about)
Bev Gormley - deputy chief
Bev joined the team in March 2010 and brings tons of ideas with her. She is enthusiastic and passionate about encouraging families to get out and enjoy nature.
“My uncle had a farm in Shropshire and as a child I loved having adventures in the woods and sploshing around in the brook in my wellies. I once tried to pole-vault over it using a fallen branch which broke and I ended up very wet and muddy. Brilliant fun!”
Oak (I love to think about what some of our mighty oaks have seen over the centuries since they were little acorns)
Trails to summer treasure (because I love making trails for my kids to follow)
