Give an hour to nature at home:
Place a birdfeeder, bird or bug box in your garden, balcony or local community garden – then watch what species it attracts
Take the children on a woodland trail around your garden and see how many different animal and plant species they can record
Leave piles of rotting wood or leaves to provide habitats for many overlooked organisms such as hedgehogs
Build a water feature in your garden to encourage pondlife such as frogs, newts or dragonflies
Plant herbs on your windowsill or potted in your garden – an easy way to encourage biodiversity and save money by ‘growing your own’
Bring a bag to your local forest park to collect seeds or acorns – plant your own tree at home when you return.
