Small Footsteps: Trees & Birds

09/08/2021, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

at EcoPark, Small Heath


Fun, practical activities for 8 to 12-year-olds, themed around our environment and taking place at the wildlife-rich EcoPark education centre, run by Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust. Through CEQ Climate Emergency Action, Quakers are the main source of financial support for Small Footsteps 2021.

This summer, Small Footsteps are providing opportunities for young people to get together in their communities and open spaces to have fun together, experience the natural world, and take something home with them.

The event is free, but registration is essential.

The Wildlife Trust will be hosting them for two free sessions at their EcoPark education centre. The first takes place on Monday 9th August, 9.00 – 15.00pm and has a focus on trees and birds. You can leave your children in the care of Wildlife Trust staff, all of whom are fully DBS checked, as they learn about and engage with the natural world.

They will get to know the trees around us; make a natural paint poster; plant a seed; discover birds with binoculars and make a birds’ nest with natural materials to take home.

Both days will include reflection on why looking after trees, birds and insects is important; plus opportunities for free play

At the end the day, the young people will make a pledge and be awarded a ‘Small Footsteps Champion’ badge and certificate.

Bring your own packed lunch, drinks and dress for the weather!
