We aim to provide education for children, young people, communities, teachers and adults about invertebrates and plants and the important roles they play in our daily lives, with an emphasis on conservation. We would like to help create future generations of people that care, understand and protect their local natural environments along with all the creatures that live there.
Mini-beast hunts with sweep nets & pooters, leaf litter collections & pond dipping.
Creating detailed drawings with observations and annotations of insects, learning about anatomy and behaviour. These can then be interlinked with other creative projects to learn about ecosystems and food webs.
Habitat creation is an important part of our work, creating wildlife sanctuaries; from insect winter homes made out of recycled materials or a mini-beast mansion, wildflower meadows and beetle banks to planting trees and hedges.
All activities will be tailored to learning about the biology and ecology of insects and plants from professionals in the field working on conservation and community projects.
Workshops can be tailored to individuals and schools specific needs
Workshops can fit into the curriculum
