Online courses

This online course aims to engage people in nature and their local environment, allowing people a distraction from the Covid-19 crisis situation and isolation. It aims to teach people new wildlife gardening skills and boost confidence in virtual group sessions. Students will learn to:

  • Understand he different habitats around us
  • Understand why it is important to take care of our gardens and local green spaces
  • Identify different species that can be found locally
  • Be able to demonstrate how to make various aids for wildlife, including bird feeders, butterfly feeders and acorn pots.

This course will be delivered online until such time as Government guidance allows face to face sessions to be delivered in the local community.

This course is offered to you alongside our partner Open Country as part of the Health Inequalities Funding from the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Partnership.


Please note: These sessions may move to a Wednesday should Covid-19 restrictions be lifted/relaxed.
