Wildlife Workshops


Wildlife Workshops were one of the real success stories of the project with an astonishing 106 workshops being delivered to 2023 eager wildlife enthusiasts.  The audience were engaged and shown how to make your garden or allotment more wildlife-friendly and taught how to identify some of the amphibians and reptiles that they might find in their green space.

The workshops suitable for both adults and children lasted between 1-2 hours and were delivered to ages as young as 4 years of age and as old as 96 years old.

  • An introduction to wildlife friendly gardening

  • A take-home pack with handy leaflets and information designed to help take simple steps to improve your plot for wildlife at home
  • Depending on the venue, may have also included practical tasks such as: making a bug hotel or pond dipping
