Wildlife Watch groups
Watch Group meetings include activities such as pond-dipping, looking for mini-beasts, bird watching, mammal tracking, Nature Reserve visits, badger and bat watching, arts and crafts and wildlife games.
Watch Groups are for children usually aged between 8 and 12 years. At the discretion of the Watch Group Leader children less than 8 years of age may be able to attend Watch meetings, but they must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Greenwatch groups are for young people aged 13 years and above. Conservation tasks and projects undertaken include activities such as butterfly monitoring, and scrub and pond clearance.
Could you help us?
We are looking for new Watch leaders. Do you love working with children and have a passion for wildlife? Could you give us a few hours of your time each month to help run a Watch Group as part of a team?
