A huge part of our conservation mission is to deliver high-quality education to the community. We therefore offer free workshops to community groups in our project area – our only condition is that they’re UK squirrel related!
Whether you’re a school wanting curriculum-relevant material, a uniform group looking for your next nature themed badge, or an adult community group wanting to learn more about wildlife conservation, we can deliver a workshop that’s right for you.
We can deliver online, indoor or outdoor workshops (Covid-19 guidelines for in-person workshops apply), get in touch to discuss the best option for you and your group.
All our workshops are free of charge, and we come ready with a host of educational resources to share with you. See our “topics” section below, or enquire about a bespoke workshop to suit your needs.
Woodland Animals (EYFS)
Come with us on a journey around the “woodland” and use your senses to discover what it’s like to be a squirrel.

Where do red squirrels live? What do they eat? Learn all about red squirrel habitat and diet in this interactive workshop and see what a day in the life of a squirrel is really like!
Red & Grey (KS2)
What happens when red and grey squirrel live together? Learn about the differences between native, non-native and invasive species and see how ecosystem interactions between red and grey squirrels have caused the decline of red squirrels.
Surveying Methods (KS3 & KS4)
How many squirrels are there and how do we know? Take a peek into the life of a conservation researcher by learning valuable surveying methods such as camera trapping, transects, and hair tube sampling.
