Wildlife Watch groups offer a fun, wild and fantastic time for kids, and we have groups which meet up every month across the county.
Watch groups are like a wild club for kids, packed full of wildlife activities and aimed at 8 – 12 year olds. Some groups can take under 8 year olds if accompanied by an adult. Please ask your local group leader for more information on this. Young people of 13 years and older can always join in by becoming teenage helpers. Each group is run by enthusiastic and trained volunteer leaders and session fees are usually around £2-£3 per child.
If you have any questions about Wildlife Watch please contact Lynn Victor and she will be happy to provide further details and connect you to a group 0115 9588242 firstname.lastname@example.org
There are also other opportunities for young people of 13 years and older with the Young Rangers and Keeping It Wild.
