...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.
In response to the pandemic we have sadly needed to cancel all of our events between March and July, as well as many we had planned for the rest of the year. We know how important nature is for everyone's health and wellbeing though, we have been working hard to adapt our popular engagement activities and are now able to offer a some small-group events at a few of our sites (pre-booking essential) as well as a growing list of on-line events.
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!
Events for families and young people
