...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.

Read more about our ongoing safety measures here and explore our full events list.

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!

Family membership

The best way to learn about all the ways you can connect with nature is to join the Wildlife Trust. You'll get our 'Local Wildlife' magazine and our children's 'Wildlife Watch' magazine, each full of news, events and ideas for wild activities. The best thing is that your membership will go to protecting local wildlife and wild places!
