22-25 July 2021 Jodrell Bank Observatory

RSPB Macclesfield Wildlife Explorers

Join Macclesfield RSPB Wildlife Explorers for a series of Arboretum Adventures. Armed with sweep nets and bug pots we’ll have special access to the wildest parts of the gardens for family nature expeditions and hands-on insect investigations. Learn to use binoculars to identify common garden birds, match wild creatures to their homes in our ‘Giving Nature a Home’ quiz and test your wildlife detective skills identifying the items on our ‘Weird and Wonderful Nature Table’. Will anyone dare test out the ‘Forest Feely Boxes’? Visit the stall to find about more about our incredible local wildlife. From majestic birds of prey to marvellous minibeasts you will find information on how to take conservation action to help.

Leaders will be on hand with lots of suggestions on how families can make the most of the wildlife in their own gardens and guidance on working towards the RSPB’s Wild Challenge Awards.
