A host of young wildlife enthusiasts from
across East Cheshire joined Macclesfield RSPB Wildlife Explorers at Teggs Nose Country Park at the weekend for their ‘Nature Needs You’ event.
Supported by Cheshire East Countryside Ranger Service, Wildlife Explorers provided a wide range of hands-on activities designed to help garden wildlife.
At a busy and vibrant event, families had fun making crumble pastry maggots,seed bombs and bug bungalows. Leaders also supervised children getting to grips with woodwork skillsmaking a bat box, nestboxes for birds and some brilliant bug houses.
This year the group are supporting The RSPB’s Giving Nature a Home campaign. As well as raising money that can be used to improve habitats and opportunities for nature right across the country we have also set ourselves a target of providing an incredible 500 new homes for wildlife locally! We want to help make sure there is always a place nature can call home here, on our doorstep, in Macclesfield and EastCheshire.
At The Nature Needs You event visitors have created a fantastic total of 80 new wildlife homes.
If we have inspired you to Give Nature a Home we would love you get in touch so we can add your pictures and stories to the website.
