Watching Tadpoles – Emma Bradshaw

Why not join a Wildlife Watch group

Are you bored with computer games and TV?  Do you want to know more about wildlife and nature? Do you want to be part of a club where you can go mini-beast hunting, play environmental games, campaign for wildlife and visit nature reserves. Then joining a Wildlife Watch group could be for you!

Watch groups are for children aged between eight and twelve years old and their families. All groups operate within a monitored framework of child welfare and safety and all Watch leaders undergo a thorough recruitment process to check their suitability to work with young people.
