Leaders visited Knutsford Brownies to talk about ‘Giving Nature a Home’.
As well as outlining the work of The RSPB, Brownies were set the challenge of matching a selection of wild creatures to the man-made homes designed for them. The girls did really well and were the first group we have visited to correctly identify the dormouse box!
Wildlife Explorer Natasha was on hand to help set up and organise the session and keep our owl under control!
Everyone made their own bug bungalow to take home. Using recycled materials the girls made individual invertebrate habitats that will provide safe shelter for the tiniest garden wildlife visitors.
The session rounded off with the girls enthusiastically flapping and tweeting round the room as part of the ‘Feather Game’, a fun environmental game that illustrates the impact human activity in wildlife habitats can have on nature.
