Our Planet Our home family workshops this summer

Nature is vital – we can’t survive without it. But our world is under threat like never before.

Our Planet, a ground-breaking documentary series, produced in partnership with Netflix, WWF and Silverback Films, raises awareness of the world’s rarest wildlife and most precious habitats. It brings to life the splendour of the natural wonders that we risk losing if we don’t act now.

Each summer session starts with a short stunning video using footage from Our planet, focusing on one habitat, with the first session exploring wildlife on your doorstep. From rivers, lakes and oceans to forests, grasslands and our frozen world, families can discover the wonders of our world, create colourful artwork to take home and help build our huge Our Planet Our Home mural. At each session, our pledge tree will flourish with actions everyone can take to protect our planet. 

Book one or more of our six engaging themes that link to ‘Our Planet’. For children aged 4+. We appreciate a donation of £3.00 per child.

Workshops will run from 10am -10.50am and 11am -11.50am. 



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+.
