Knowsley Safari is putting on free conservation workshops for school children

As well as being a fun family day out, Knowsley Safari has a commitment to local communities to share its wildlife and conservation expertise, as well as its green, outdoor space and local school children can benefit from this with its popular – and free-of-charge – roadshows.

The Safari’s Conservation and Learning & Discovery teams are available to come into schools between now and February half term to deliver exciting, interactive workshops on a variety of topics, which will appeal to EYFS  (ages 4-5) right through to Year 11 (age 16).

FREE Reclaiming Reds (Red Squirrels workshop)

Coinciding with Red Squirrel Awareness Week (10th – 17th October 2022), primary and secondary schools in Liverpool City Region and West Lancashire can book a choice of five free-of-charge Reclaiming Reds workshops, including a tailormade option, available until December 2022. The workshops are for EYFS through to higher eduction, focusing on age-appropriate topics such as the differences between red and grey squirrels, exploring woodland, food and habitat and surveying.

Naomi Walsh, Research and Conservation Officer, Knowsley Safari says:

“Autumn is an ideal time to focus on Red Squirrels, the species is especially active now as they gather food for the winter. Although scarce, there are populations of Red Squirrels in Merseyside and parts of Lancashire and with fewer leaves on the trees they’re easier to spot, so now is a good time to get involved!”
