Rangers is our monthly nature club for children who are members of the Selborne Society. It is held on the second Saturday of the month from 2-4pm and is open to children aged 3-10.
Rangers Plus is our monthly nature club for children aged 10+ and their carers. It is held at the same time as Rangers.
Each session has a different theme where we explore some aspect of the natural world or heritage of the reserve. For example, we have taken part in citizen science projects such as the Big Butterfly Count and completed activities to earn the RSPB Bronze Award. Most sessions also have a craft activity such as making a pine cone bird feeder or a wormery to take home. Children will learn about the different wildlife found in the reserve and how to help look after different habitats.
We also have a yearly 'sleepout' at the reserve, where families camp overnight, enjoying a campfire and bat walk.
We feel strongly that children should be connected to nature and care about their local environment. We also know how important it is for children to enjoy time outdoors, especially in an environment that is relatively wild, but also so close to urban life.
Membership to the Selborne Society includes all Rangers and Rangers Plus sessions. For more information on how to become a member of the Selborne Society and join these sessions see The Selborne Society or see our Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
