COVID Grant Supports ‘Wild@Home’
Durham Wildlife Trust have been awarded £3,600 in support of ‘Wild@Home’ which is a free weekly program to Discover, Explore and take part in wildlife activities, supporting home learning, encouraging everyone to enjoy and benefit from nature and raising awareness about wildlife and the outdoors during the coronavirus crisis.
Wild@Home is free to all at the point of delivery, aimed at children and families across Durham, Darlington, Gateshead, Sunderland, and South Tyneside.
Despite lockdown restrictions beginning to ease, many children are still unable to go to school and participate in their usual learning activities.
The thematic online resources encourage everyone to connect with wildlife from looking out the window, spending time in the garden or backyard to taking a local walk. The activities aim to reinvigorate everyone’s relationship with nature and support families with home learning whilst schools are closed.
Each week different learning materials, videos, ID sheets, survey forms, practical activities and craft ideas are uploaded onto Durham Wildlife Trust’s website. Since the lockdown started there have been over 23,846 new users visiting the website. https://durhamwt.com/wildathome/
