Green Pathways for Life in Frome, Somerset

For those not yet ready to join group activities, we are providing a variety of activities to participants each week for home and garden. These include arts and crafts projects, gardening for wildlife, and fun ways to learn about nature. These activities come in a variety of media, and with a balance between indoor and garden spaces to maximise accessibility.
Most of these activities are interactive, and several are collaborative, encouraging ongoing involvement and communication with the wider group.

Come Forth for Wildlife in the Forth Valley, Scotland
Find out how the Come Forth for Wildlife project is continuing to help people learn and stay connected through this time:
We are continuing to engage and work with the communities of the Forth Valley (Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire) to develop connections to conserve and enhance the unique heritage the area offers. This is being achieved by delivering our new virtual Amphibian and Reptile Ecology and Survey Methods Training, which we have received an overwhelming positive response for.
In the not too distant future, we look forward to once again working with the fantastic communities of the Forth Valley area to conserve reptiles and amphibians and get people excited about nature!
In the meantime, please check out our brilliant resources on wildlife gardening that you could do at home during this time by clicking here. You can also have a watch of our craft videos for fun and educational activities on the Froglife Youtube channel.
Find out about Froglife’s new Discovering Reptiles project:
The Dragon Finder App is available to download for free and can help with the identification of all the UK’s reptiles, as well as amphibians, in addition to reporting sightings in your local area. Getting outside during these difficult times is fast becoming an important part of many people’s lives, and we hope that this app helps inspires you to do so.
You can download the Dragon Finder app by clicking here.
As part of the Discovering Reptiles project, Froglife were planning to host a number of workshops across the UK aimed at training people in reptile ecology, identification, and surveying. In light of the current restrictions, we are currently working on delivering these workshops online.
For the time being, if you want to learn more about our native and non-native reptiles you can visit our web page here.
You can also learn more about how to survey for reptiles, which you can put into practice when the lockdown ends, from Froglife’s “Surveying for Reptiles” booklet, which is available to download for free here.
