...just five minutes spent in nature can improve people’s sense of self-esteem and mood.
J Barton and J Pretty, Environmental Science and Technology, 2010

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 Update

Our plans for returning to the full range of our face-to-face events programme are based on the Government’s Roadmap published on 22 February 2021. We will continue to review our decisions on a regular basis to ensure that we are doing everything possible to keep our staff, volunteers and visitors safe.

Read more about our plans for reopening here and explore our growing programme of online and self-guided events, including talks, walks and workshops.

Events for families and young people

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!
