Complete the Hedgehog Award at home!

Calling all wildlife enthusiasts! The Hedgehog Award is a great way to develop your skills and knowledge whilst also helping your local wildlife. Have fun with your friends and family by completing eight nature-inspired activities. From spotting wildlife to getting crafty, there’s something for everyone to try.

You can choose which activities you would like to do, with some suggestions from us to help get you started. And then let us know how you get on and receive your Hedgehog Award certificate to print at home! So, what are you waiting for?
