...just five minutes spent in nature can improve people’s sense of self-esteem and mood.

We have lots of opportunities for young people and families to connect with nature, with events and activities for all ages.

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. Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of the Wildlife Trusts and features regular group activities. 

Events for families and young people

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!
