Dale Fort Wildlife Watch Group

 
Dale Fort Wildlife Watch Group group logo

This Wildlife Watch Group is organised by Field Studies Council Staff and Volunteers from Dale Fort Field Centre. Regular meetings for 6 -13 year olds will be held on the second Saturday of every month from 2pm until 4pm meeting at the centre. (Children need to be supervised by a parent/guardian). Older/younger members are also invited however the may not be able to fully participate in all elements of the activity. The initially activities will be decided by the group's leader, but for later meetings, it is hoped that the children will decide what activities they are most interested in carrying out. Possible activities are: • rockpooling • pond-dipping • wild art • wildlife gardening • mini-beast hunt • weather monitoring • butterfly feeders • environmental games • seine netting • crabbing • mammal/moth trapping • beach cleans • animal feeders - and much, much more! For more information contact Dale Fort Field Centre on 01646 636 205 or email catherine.df@field-studies-council.org / ea.df@field-studies-council.org
