Nature at home

The Ecology Centre, has put together some ideas for keeping you connected with nature.

The activities are suitable for all ages and living spaces and use minimal resources, so there is something for everyone. Some activities can be done entirely indoors, some are suitable for daily walks and a few require outdoor space. All activities have step-by-step guides and resource lists.
