About Wildlife Watch events

The Trust organises a series of Wildlife Watch events each year which, although aimed at everyone up to 16 years of, age are open to all, young and old.

Events are usually free of charge, but donations to support our ongoing vital work are most welcome. Check individual event listings for notes about suitable clothing and any costs or materials needed.

Young people must be accompanied by parents or guardians who are prepared to take responsibility for their safety.

Working with schools & local community groups

The Trust is committed to providing an excellent education service to schools across the Island on a wide variety of national curriculum subjects from science and geography to maths and art.  
We also work with local community groups such as cubs, scouts, rainbows and brownies to further encourage interest in wildlife and conservation.
