Springing high at Stapeley Grange

Over the last two months WildAid Charlie and the volunteer education team have delivered first  - hand wildlife rehabilitation practice at a busy wildlife centre for over 200 university students.  The students come from far afield: Leeds, St Helen’s,  and North Lancashire and more closer to home in South Cheshire.  Their commonality is wildlife welfare.  Education officer Charlie pass said:  It is so encouraging to receive such interest from universities teaching animal welfare courses.  It is especially so welcoming to receive return visits from universities as well as receiving new faces.  It is a pleasure to share wildlife rehabilitation practices with the young future involved in animal welfare. If you work at a college or university and practice animal welfare and rehabilitation we would recommend a visit to Stapeley Grange. 

Wildlfie Club has been delivering environmental education to young people for nealy 3 years.  Our 3rd anniverssary will be Juy this year. This fun and creative club is run every month and throughout school holidays, for children who would not normally have an opportunity to link with wildlife or nature.  We receive some great feedback from children and parents alike and so much so that WildAid Charlie is now engaging young people to become unique Wildlife Community Champions. I hope to bring you more news about this soon.

The classroom and garden at Stapeley Grange provides a perfect location to deliver art classes. Charlie Pass has established links with local artist Annabel Thornton.  Annabel is a professional artist gaining her BA Fine Art Honours Degree. Sharing a passion for wildlife and education, Annabel and the education team are ‘calling for artists’ to show an interest in participating in ‘wildlife themed’ art  and craft classes at this unique centre.  We would be particularly keen to hear from adult and children groups and groups with special needs.
