Fun and Frolics with Nature

Games are important to children, this set of activities encourages children to learn to recognise plants, know their names and look out for them.

The knowledge that the children have obtained while playing will stay with them into adulthood and continue to be taught to future generations of children.

The Daily Nature Discovery Walk

Transform your daily walk into an exciting Nature Discovery Walk.  Become a nature detective spotting, recording and gathering natural treasures.  Pack essentials on the walk to become an intrepid explorer.  April, May and June are perfect months to watch and discover nature unfold, each day is different.  

Build your own Bee Hotel

Did you know that the majority of bees are queen-less, don’t produce honey and don’t live in colonies or hives?

These bees are called solitary bees, and we have over 250 different species in the UK, some of which you may have heard of; leafcutter bees, mining bees and mason bees to name a few. These bees are fantastic pollinators, however they are much less known than honeybees and bumblebees. They are not aggressive at all and so we should be encouraging them in our gardens.

To help support populations of solitary bees in your garden you can create your own bee hotel where you can watch the life cycle of these fascinating creatures. It truly is an amazing thing to see a little bee carrying materials to make a nest all by herself.
