May half term - Wear it WIld
The idea behind Wear it Wild is simple. In workplaces, schools and homes across the country, people will be donning an item of animal-inspired clothing - raising money to help protect our incredible world. The official day is 7th June 2019 but you can celebrate Wear it Wild at any time throughout the year!
Here at the Living Planet Centre, WWF UK's headquarters, we'll be getting ready for Wear it Wild this May half term with creative Habitat Headband making workshops. Join us to go on a journey of discovery through our fantastic interactive exhibition - the WWF Experience with a special really wild quiz and take part in totally roarsome craft activities in the colourful learning zone.
45 minute workshops will be taking place at 10am, 10.45am and 11.30am on Tuesday 28th May.
The WWF Experience is open from Monday to Friday 9am -5pm
Don't be sloth, book your workshop now to avoid disappointment!

WWF event with Wisley - coming soon
This event with Wisley has been rearranged from Easter to the summer holidays. Please check back soon for the date and more information.
Drop in from 10.30am - 3pm
Our urban gardens provide essential habitats for an array of wildlife, from worms, insects and spiders to the bees and butterflies that pollinate our flowers. They are havens that help us to feel better too, as we sit and relax, and notice the scents, textures and changing seasons.
Join us for an afternoon of discovery with our guest gardening expert, Ben Brace, from RHS Garden Wisley.
- Learn about trees, shrubs and flowering plants that will help you bring wildlife into your garden
- Be transported by the perfumed flowers and herbs in our Apothecary Garden, and learn how to grow them in a bed or container
There will also be the opportunity to take part in a fun quiz in the WWF experience themed around wildlife, oceans, freshwater and forests.
Please register at the Living Planet Centre reception on arrival. Suitable for children 4+.
