Local Wildlife Watch Groups

Wildlife Watch is an exciting way for youngsters to explore their surroundings and share some nature moments with other wild children.

We have Watch groups throughout Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside, so if you are aged between 8 - 13 and are into bugs and slugs, frogs and logs, voles and moles, bees and trees or trails and snails, then come along!  Some groups are happy for younger ones to go along so long as they are accompanied by an adult, so please do check with us.

To find out more, simply contact the Watch leader for your nearest group from the list below.
