Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of the Wildlife Trusts and the UK’s leading environmental action club for children. If you care about nature and the environment and want to explore your local wildlife - this is the club for you!
The Great Fen Watch leaders have been busy planning a programme of exciting and fun activities for the next few months for members to be inspired by, be involved in and encouraged to learn about local wildlife and much, much more!
We meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month, usually at the Wildlife Trust Countryside Centre Ramsey Heights but we also go further afield - the Great Fen’s the limit! Meetings are packed full of wildlife activities, crafts and celebrations of nature.
The group is open to all aged between 6 and 12; under 8s are welcome with an adult. See the events page for information about the next meetings.
Making a bird feeding station, building dens in the woods, finding exciting creatures in the ponds, learning more about trees, dragonflies and birds, holding a concert with musical instruments made from natural materials, apple pressing, making natural dyes, making and sailing model willow boats … the list is almost endless!
With our great team of experienced, friendly and enthusiastic team of volunteer leaders, fun is guaranteed. Our members really respond to learning outdoors in a fun and interactive way while having the opportunity to make new friends and meeting up every month with old ones.
