Wild At Home
Our Wild At Home project is the place for children aged 5-10 to learn about and discover wildlife on their doorstep. Join us for an exciting online event or try your hand at one of our numerous wildlife discovery or craft activities!
Share your #WildAtHome experiences with us, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram or contact us via e-mail and let us know what you've been up to, show us your pictures or photos and tell us how you've been keeping wild.
Go wild online
Join us for twice-weekly* online events with fascinating wildlife themes in the next couple of weeks - from minibeasts to garden birds - hosted by our knowledgeable wildlife experts. We offer lots of resources and downloads accompanying the weekly themes.
* Friday's talks are repeated sessions, no need to book on both
Become a Wild Child
Take part in every week's online event and colour in the weekly badge. At the end of the Wild At Home Winter Term, once all badges are completed, send us a photo of your sheet (webform open from early February) and receive your very own Wild Child Certificate and more inspiration to stay wild!
Week 2 - Water for Wildlife
Join us for Week 2 of the Wild At Home Winter Term and learn why water is so important for us and wildlife and which animals like to live in or near water.
