Zog the clumsy but loveable dragon will join the Gruffalo, Stick Man and Highway Rat trails at Westonbirt Arboretum from January 11.

The character from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s children’s picture book will star in a new activity trail, following the animated special from Magic Light Pictures on BBC1 this Christmas. A pupil at Dragon School, Zog strives to win a golden star by learning lots of essential dragon skills such as flying, roaring, breathing fire and capturing royalty.

Forestry Commission England si now inviting children to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey.

Kit Beaumont, Recreation Manager at Westonbirt Arboretum said: “The trail will be an amazing adventure, encouraging visitors to make the most of the winter season and beyond in our beautiful arboretum. We are very excited to be working with Magic Light Pictures again and are looking forward to families having a new and exciting reason to visit Westonbirt Arboretum this winter.”

Information and free downloadable activity sheets are available from forestryengland.uk/zog.
