Environmental Club for Kids

WITH spring upon us, Thurrock Council’s Langdon Hills’ ranger team is gearing up for its regular environmental club meetings for young people.

The Junior Nature Club is for young people aged eight to 11 and runs between 10am and noon – £3 a session – one Saturday a month until November.

The Youth Ranger Service is for older children, aged 12 to 16 and is held between 1pm and 3pm on the same Saturday.

The junior club is focused on learning about wildlife and how to conserve it. Meetings typically involve active games, crafts and outdoor activities.

The Youth Ranger Service covers similar topics, but in greater depth. Members get involved in practical management tasks around the park while having fun and learning new skills.

Both groups meet at Westley Heights (SS16 6HX) on the following dates:

22 March – Bonkers about birds
19 April – Easter Eggstravaganza
17 May – Grassland explorer
14 June – Minibeast mayhem
26 July – Woodland explorer
20 September – Conservation day
18 October – Halloween Challenge
15 November -Tree dressing workshop

Places are limited for both clubs and people are asked to book in advance via email at Langdon.hills@btconnect.com or by calling 01268 542066.
