School visits

Amongst Ely Wildspace volunteers are a number of enthusiastic naturalists and ex teachers who are willing and able to give groups of school children a first-hand knowledge of the area and a hands on investigation of the wildlife. In previous years, groups from Ely St John’s and the Lantern school have visited as part of their science work on Habitats. They have explored the area with an enthusiastic guide, and used sweep nets to find insects in a meadow and the wide range of invertebrates on and under the different trees in Pocket Park.

Ely Wildlife Watch

This group for children and their families is run by Wildlife Trust volunteers. It meets once a month to have fun while learning about the wealth of wildlife within Ely Wildspace. To find out more contact Helen Moore.
