We actively promote education in our local community.
Youth Group Visits
A visit to a youth group usually lasts up to an hour and is tailored to suit the age of the children attending. During a session we will talk about the physical characteristics of a hedgehog, their diet, how we can help our prickly friends and, of course, answer the many questions they may have about hedgehogs. There is usually time for an activity or game, all hedgehog themed of course.
As a primary school teacher, Diane is passionate about educating children. This enthusiasm does not just stop at the school gate and it is our job to educate our next generation on how to look after our planet and the wildlife we share it with. A visit to a school could take the form of a whole school assembly or a visit to a particular year group. Full day sessions can be tailored to your school's needs, please get in touch to discuss further. These are just a few local schools visited.
If you would like to arrange an educational visit, please get in touch (we do have to limit traveling time). We do not charge anything for our visits but always appreciate a donation of some kind, whether it's fundraising for the visit, a quick 'whip round' on the day or collecting donations of wet cat or dog food.
2nd Otley Scouts Hedgehog House Building
After a chat about hedgehogs 2nd Otley Monday Scouts decided to have a go at building hedgehog houses. Not only did they learn about helping wild hedgehogs they also got to practice their carpentry skills.
The finished houses were brilliant and were placed in local hedgehog friendly school grounds.
