There are activities for children and young people of all ages through our wildlife clubs. So if you are aged between 0 and 16, love wildlife, and want to do more to help it there’s something for you at the Nature Discovery Centre!
Nature Tots get the chance to explore and discover nature through structured sessions of free play, games, crafts and stories.
Why not bring your pre-school little ones along to enjoy nature discovery on our beautiful nature reserve? Sessions take place on the 3rd Tuesday of the month throughout the year and last 2 hours.
These sessions are open to children aged between 0 and 5 years. Children must be accompanied by an adult and please dress for the weather. Sessions are provided by the BBOWT Linking the Landscape Project, which is made possible through grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Booking is essential. You can now book online for Nature Tots, take a look at our What's On Page.
Join our new club for 5-8 year olds and their parents on the third Saturday of every month. We meet from 10am-12noon. Sessions will include hands on wildlife activities, practical activities such as fire lighting and plenty of opportunity for child-led outdoor play. Children must be accompanied by at least one adult. Sessions must be booked in advance, you can book for one session at a time or a 6 session block through our What's On Page
If you are aged between 8 and 12, love wildlife, and want to do more to help it then Young Rangers is the club for you!
We meet fortnightly on a Tuesday throughout the year. Sessions last two hours and are packed full of fun games and activities to teach you all about the fantastic world that surrounds you.
If you are aged between 12 and 16, love wildlife, and want to do more to help it then Teen Rangers is the club for you!
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month throughout the year. Sessions last two hours and will be having regular full-day weekend sessions so that we can get really stuck into practical conservation tasks. Teen Rangers are given more responsibility to help manage and look after our local wild spaces as well as learning the skills required to be a real wildlife warrior. We’ll also be working towards achieving the John Muir Award – a nationally recognised conservation award.
Sessions are provided by the BBOWT Linking the Landscape Project, which is made possible by grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Children must be registered in advance by a parent or guardian. For more information and a registration form contact Becky O'Melia on 01635 874381 or email@example.com.
