Connecting with nature has been proven to improve mental health and well-being and during this difficult time, we need it more than ever. Through our Get Wild at Home experience we are bringing some wild into your homes and are offering advice and tips on how you can support and embrace wildlife at home.
As a charity, our work would not be possible without the kind donations from our supporters. If you would like to help us continue looking after Staffordshire's wildlife and wild places and inspiring others about nature, you can make a donation below, or here. Together, we will create a Wilder Staffordshire
