After School Wildlife Clubs

We run very popular wildlife clubs in primary schools across Edinburgh. These offer a wide range of fun and adventurous wildlife and environmental activities and projects in the local environment. They are designed to offer members the chance to experience nature first hand, try new and exciting challenges, learn new ‘outdoor’ skills and realise that learning and interacting with their local environment is very important but also really good fun.

Here are some of the things we get up to, but there are many more:

  • Life on the beach (This activity will be available to all schools but will involve buses, alternative pick up points etc. Details nearer the time).
  • Life in deadwood and leaf litter there’s so much going on under your feet.
  • River watch (as with life on the beach)…wellies and nets.
  • Tracks, trails and camouflage…are you prepared to get dirty?
  • Winter bird food…it’s messy but so important.
  • Woodland adventure…getting to know your woodland.
  • Bird or bat boxes… take them home and watch our flying friends.
  • Food for free.
  • Bushcraft skills (shelters, cordage and fire making).
  • Wildlife in the dark. Bats and moths, maybe a badger.

The clubs run from term to term throughout the school year. If you are interested in more information please get in touch
