Helping young minds to connect with nature

22 August 2017

Wildlife Watch is a nationwide initiative from The Wildlife Trusts, helping children and young people aged 5-15 to connect with nature.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust run 10 Watch groups around the county, inspiring hundreds of children each year.

Southsea Watch group are looking for fun and friendly volunteers with a passion for wildlife to help lead the group. They meet one Saturday morning a month at Cumberland House Natural History Museum where the group explore habitats, play games, do crafts and find out more about the nature on our doorstep. Most meetings will involve getting outside, whatever the weather!

Volunteer leaders are responsible for planning and running safe, fun and imaginative activities for the children. Other duties will include writing risk assessments (training can be provided for this), keeping records of attendance/income and organising equipment.

You will be part of a team, receiving First Aid training and a designated member of staff at HIWWT to support you.
