Giving Nature a Home

Macclesfield RSPB Wildlife Explorers is the junior section of The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in East Cheshire. Visit our stand to ask the team about our incredible local wildlife, from garden birds and butterflies to wildflowers and invertebrates. Find out how small actions can make a big difference when it comes to making space for nature:

Transform your outdoor space into a mini nature reserve.

Have fun with family-friendly nature projects.

Get involved and collect vital data as a citizen scientist.

Inspire the next generation to enjoy and care for our countryside and wildlife.

Who lives in a house like this? Take the ‘Homes for Wildlife’ challenge to discover more about providing man-made homes for wild creatures.

Meet Emily the swift and find out about the conservation work being done nationwide to help these incredible summer visitors. Learn about screaming parties, arcs and bangers and how birds that only ever land to nest, actually get some sleep. Plus the ‘Weird and Wonderful Nature Table’ returns again with a whole host of new and fascinating items on display – how many can you identify?
