...just five minutes spent in nature can improve people’s sense of self-esteem and mood.
We have oceans of opportunities and resources to help young people and families to connect with nature and while we've had to put our jam-packed schedule of events and activities on hold for now, our experienced Education Team will be bringing you a wealth of resources to support teaching children about nature.
Covid-19 Safety Measures
We are delighted that our outdoor events, workshops and programmes, including family events and guided walks, are running again. Visit our events page for a full list of upcoming events and to book your place. Events will continue to be planned on the basis of making them Covid-safe. This may happen in a number of ways, including limiting group size, regular sanitisation and ensuring personal space. Our duty of care to our staff, volunteers, members and visitors remains our top priority.
Regular sessions for young people
Little bugs, Wildlife Watch and Youth Ranger groups meet up regularly (usually once a month) to share a love of nature. There is no need to sign-up for more than one session at a time, but we find participants always want to come back!
Find your local learning experience
Our Activity Centres provide wonderful natural settings with dedicated teams leading engaging ways for families to enjoy the outdoors. These include bug hunts, pond dipping, den building, insect days and night adventures looking for bats, glow worms and magnificent moths.
