Here at the Thames Basin Heaths Partnership, we’ve got some amazing activities for you and your family to help you connect with and learn about the wildlife around you. Take a look at our activities page for loads of free downloads, instruction sheets and resources!

You can look for wildlife almost anywhere – on a trip to your local heathland or a local greenspace. You can certainly keep an eye out at home in your garden – if you have one. You can take a closer look at the plants on your balcony, rummaging around your allotment or just spending some time gazing out of the window – I do this a lot! Examine nooks and crannies, look under things or simply just stop and listen – It doesn’t really matter where you are, as wildlife is all around.

Use our resources to inspire you to, to help you learn something new and to have some fun. Getting a bit more wildlife in your life can only be a good thing!
