You don't have to travel far to be inspired by the wonders of nature. Some of Europe's most beautiful and important wildlife is right here on our doorstep. Every year, Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust helps people get closer to nature.
They manage 12 nature reserves, from large moorland areas of international importance to small city centre nature parks. The education team works to engage children and young people in environmental issues by running outdoor play projects and providing education opportunities at our nature reserves and other green spaces across the city. Wildlife Watch gives children aged 8 to 12 a way to find out more about their local environment in a fun and exciting way. Activities include: tree planting, nest box building, art projects and wildlife surveys
Find them at February Freebie…
