ELHAP's latest addition to the orchard- our Wildlife Hide- which was generously funded by Fairlop Leos, has become popular among everyone who visits ELHAP.  This is no surprise as tucked away amongst the trees in ELHAP's wild orchard it's hard to believe the noise and bustle of our adventure playground is just metres away.

The opportunity to embrace nature is at the very core of ELHAP's ethos and the new Wildlife Hide is the ideal location to do just that. It's the perfect contrast to the hubbub of our adventure playground, a place to take a moment for yourself, surrounded by trees, to drink in the sounds and colours of nature. 

It is however more than just a retreat; kitted with binoculars and wildlife charts, it's a place to experience and learn about the large variety of wildlife that ELHAP attracts. ELHAP Orchard Project has already run many exciting sessions in the Hide and during Saturday Club children can often be found colouring pictures of the birds which they have spotted. There's no doubt that time spent there generates a sense of respect for the world around us, allowing visitors to witness nature at work and feel a part of it's magic.
