Description Discover how to create and maintain what can be both a rich educational resource and a tranquil, beautiful wild area. In recent times, pressure on agricultural land has brought our native wildlife under threat and the value of gardens providing habitats and food for wildlife has come to the fore. Creating opportunities for children to nurture and study these animals is essential if we are to engender a caring attitude to our natural environment. Wildlife gardens can be used for science and are great for carrying out experiments, for example on which plants attract which insects and ideas for preventing slug and snail damage. You will be surprised at some of the creative ideas that children suggest.
