Go wild in nature!

For wildlife-themed fun activities and challenges Worcestershire Wildlife Trust can help your Scout pack discover nature and work towards your badges. We can welcome you here to Lower Smite Farm to do any of the following activities and badges, or we could meet you at one of our nature reserves throughout Worcestershire. To avoid disturbance to our nature reserves, not all activities listed below are available away from Lower Smite Farm. Please contact Hannah (01905 754919) to discuss your requirements.

A typical session last between 1 - 2 hours in which we can tailor the session to suit your group's time and requirements best. 

 

Environmental Conservation – Find out all about environmental conservation and do your part. How long does rubbish really take to biodegrade? What can be recycled? How can you save energy in the home? Discover all this and more or try your hand at a conservation task (dependent on time of year and availability of tasks). Or why not uncover the facts and find out how polluted the water is using creatures you find whilst pond dipping or stream dipping. 

Forrester – Visit a Worcestershire Wildlife Trust woodland reserve to learn all about trees, how to identify them and find out how we make our woodlands great for wildlife. 

Naturalist Badge – Explore a nature reserve and complete a citizen science survey - from air quality, to earthworms and biodiversity there's something for all. We can guide you round Monkwood, Pipers Hill, or Chaddesley Wood nature reserves amongst many others.  

 

If you lead a group of Explorer Scouts we would be happy to design you an introduction day to the naturalist activity badge. With and introduction to species identification, naming, survey methods, conservation we can get you started on your way to wildlife discovery!

 

For all enquiries and bookings please contact Hannah on 01905 754919. We might even be able to come out to your group where you meet so get in touch to find out more.
