Young People and Families

...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 Update

Our engagement team have been hard at work adapting their activities to be fully covid-secure. Strict cleaning routines, separated areas and limited tickets are some of the many measures we have in place to ensure we can still offer you our popular nature engagement activities. As this means spaces are limited we do advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment. Pre-booking is essential.

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

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!
