This course will introduce families to the wonders of nature on their doorstep. Throughout the course, we will learn to identify some of the common plant and animal species you are likely to come across in gardens and local parks. As your confidence grows in identifying plants and animals you are invited to take part in Citizen Science, helping scientists learn about and map our wonderful wildlife by recording your own findings on the Wild Work Citizen Science Portal.
Who says you have to go on safari to see nature? Our gardens and parks are filled with wonderful wildlife when you know what to look for! A course for the whole family.
