People's Postcode Lottery
Inspiring future wildlife enthusiasts
Thanks to support from players of People's Postcode Lottery, over the past few years we have delivered a county-wide programme of Forest Schools inspired Woodland Workshops and developed a range of family friendly events.
These workshops and events focused on teaching a range of craft and survival skills in safe, inspirational outdoor spaces.
We ran specially tailored programmes of workshops for schools and community groups and offered family-friendly sessions at weekends and in school holidays at our two flagship nature reserves, Attenborough and Idle Valley.
Over 600 people joined our family-friendly open day at our Skylarks Nature Reserve. Children of all ages and their families enjoyed pond-dipping, toasting marshmallows, traditional wood turning, making brooms and other bushcraft activities, supported by the People's Postcode Lottery.
We now cater for 13-25 year olds, through our Green Rangers and Keeping it Wild teams. Thanks to People's Postcode Lottery, we offer exciting weekly and monthly sessions that encourage young people to develop their understanding and passion for wildlife with their peers.
