Worksop Wildlife Watch Group
Wildlife Watch groups are the junior section of the Wildlife Trusts. Their aim is to encourage young people to take an interest in wildlife and the environment in a fun way, through games and activities.
Although the Worksop branch of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is very active we wanted to provide something specifically for children to get involved in. We felt that many children today miss out on exploring and visits to places where they can meet wildlife and we wanted to try and fill this gap.
We made the decision to start a group in a school because we felt that way we would reach children who may not otherwise have these opportunities. Also we hoped this would give us more support in terms of teaching expertise and resources. We decided to start our first group at Redlands School in Worksop.
