Finally, we will explore ways to support wild birds and make bird seed and nut balls* that participants can hang outside. *Allergies: Please note the interactive activity will involve peanuts. Learning Outcomes: • Identify common garden birds through visual and auditory ways. • Understand the role birds play in the ecosystem and their threats. • Learn to help wild birds and make seed and nut balls. Curriculum Links: Science: Living Things, Environmental Awareness & Care. Geography: Environmental Awareness & Care, Human Environments: Natural Environments. SPHE. At our workshops, we offer a range of duration and delivery options to suit your needs. Whether you prefer in-person sessions or online workshops, each option offers unique advantages. For instance, a 45-minute online workshop provides a solid foundation, covering the basics effectively. However, opting for a longer, 90 minute to 2 hour 15 minute workshop enables deeper learning and allows us to accomplish more together. Choosing the extended option not only enriches your learning experience but also ensures we can delve into more advanced topics and incorporate more interactive activities, resulting in greater value. So, for a more comprehensive and in-depth session, we encourage you to consider the longer duration options.
