Wildlife Workshops


Ever wondered how you could make your garden or allotment more wildlife-friendly but weren’t quite sure how to go about it? Want to learn how to identify some of the amphibians and reptiles that you might find in your green space?

This may be the perfect workshop for you!


The workshops are completely free, are suitable for both adults and children, and usually run for 1-2 hours.


What do the sessions include?

  • An introduction to wildlife friendly gardening
  • Group tasks to get you thinking about the steps you can take to improve your green space for wildlife
  • The opportunity to learn some basic identification and surveying techniques for amphibians and reptiles
  • A take-home pack with handy leaflets and information designed to help you take simple steps to improve your plot for wildlife at home
  • Depending on the venue, may also include practical tasks such as: making a bug hotel or pond dipping
