Supporting you during lockdown

Supporting you during lockdown

With our usual activities on hold we have been working in different and exciting new ways to enable you to continue to discover and be inspired by the outdoor world.

Virtual worm lessons: Our education officer, Sarah, has been hosting interactive live sessions on worm biology learning why worms are important and how they navigate a dangerous world. 

Pond survey videos: We are in the process of filming Pond Watch level 1 surveys sharing with pupils in Jersey what is in their ponds during lockdown. So far we have found newts, toad tadpoles, beetle larvae, dragonfly larvae and so much more. Sponsored by The Countryside Enhancement Scheme. 

Virtual meet ups for recorders: We plan to host more virtual meet ups for recording groups where we can learn and share what we’ve found during lockdown. If you have a topic or presentation you would like to share in our virtual meetup please let us know at Presentations need to include a PowerPoint or similar and between 30 and 40minutes with 15minutes for questions. We will be using Zoom and recording these talks to them available on our YouTube account.
