At this time of year the birds really benefit from a bit of extra food so what better way than to make them bird food cake. In this workshop the group will learn all about the birds in your grounds, how they have adapted to eat different foods and easy ways to recognize and identify them. Each child will get the chance to get their hands mucky making a bird food cake using lard and a mixture of interesting ingredients. Groups to supply mixing bowls, clean yoghurt pots and aprons for this activity please.

This is a fantastic session in which participants use their woodwork skills to build their own nest boxes alongside experienced guides, which can be put up in school grounds, community areas or at home. They learn not only about the wildlife which will benefit from the boxes, but can also enjoy many hours of wildlife watching when new residents move in.
Boxes are available for birds, bats and insects.
10 boxes maximum per session at an additional cost of £6 per box.
Groups must agree to necessary health and safety requirements.

Book an Activity - Terms and Conditions
As a charity we do have to ask those requesting a Nature Workshop, Educational Talk or Guided Nature Visit to make a donation to cover our costs for facilitating the activity.
However we do not want affordability to prohibit any group from discovering wildlife and nature and learning more about it. If the suggested donations mentioned in each section are beyond the means of your group, please contact us to discuss negotiating a special rate.
Please note that the amounts listed are based on travel within a set radius of the Ulster Wildlife Trust offices, for activities at a greater distance an additional charge to cover mileage may be applied.
