Hedgehog, Kestrel and Nature Rangers Award
All Cheshire Wildlife Trust family members are eligible for our fantastic new Hedgehog, Kestrel and Nature Ranger Awards which allows children to earn stickers and an Award badge when they take part in our exciting activities exploring nature and wildlife.
By taking part we hope children will:
• Have fun getting outdoors with friends and family.
• Develop new skills and knowledge.
• Have a positive impact on wildlife or the environment.
• Get to know more places and people in their local area
How does it work?
Your membership pack should include a handy credit card sized Hedgehog Award, progressing to the Kestrel Award and then progressing to the Nature rangers Award card. To earn the award your children will simply need to take part in Wildlife Trust family members’ events, Wildplay, Summer Schools or Family Forest Schools. For details of all our events see our ‘what’s on’ page or you may be personally invited to member only family events - they all count!
Our family events and Wildplay takes place in a number of venues around Cheshire.
Activities will include pond dipping, small mammal trapping, newt experiences, minibeast hunting, family conservation days and forest school activities and much more. They are a great way for children to learn about nature whilst having fun. At each session they will be given a sticker which they stick onto the award cards. When the have eight stickers they will earn a Hedgehog Award badge, when they have an additional 10 they will have the Kestrel Award and when they have an additional 12 they will receive the Nature Rangers Award.
