Description

Summer is a time for relaxation, for enjoying the holidays and for making friends. What if all the above could be combined with learning about nature too? That is what this course is all about!

Nature needs Nature Guardians and the hot summer months will not stop us from exploring and learning more. With a balanced mixture of indoor and outdoor activities, BirdLife Malta is launching Nature Guardians summer course: Nature, fun and friends!: a three-month course for children aged 7 to 12. The course will run on 10 consecutive Tuesdays between July and September 2024, with a break for Santa Marija (see dates below).

This fun, hands-on learning course will look into the wonders of local nature, be it the smallest insect, to the most curious tree and the fascinating birds. We will also have innovative outings to meet with other NGOs and see what work they carry out to help and protect nature. This small group of children, capped at 14 participants, will learn what it means to manage habitats and improve them for the good of flora and fauna. We will monitor migration, build bug hotels and nest boxes, set up freshwater ponds and much more. These three months will be a voyage in which children will make new friends, bond with nature, and become more conscious and appreciative of the need to take care and act in favour of nature.

Meeting point will always be Salina Nature Reserve and when necessary, transport to other sites (included in the fee) will be provided by BirdLife Malta.

The cost of the course, which includes a Nature Guardians T-shirt, is €220. Booking will be on a first-come, first-served basis, with a maximum of only 14 children accepted, so hurry up and complete application and payment.
