To ensure our customers get the best experience of British wildlife, we offer a wide range of services both indoors and outdoors. This gives people of all ages and abilities the best chance to discover and enjoy the fantastic biodiversity of the UK and beyond.
Using our background of conservation and education, we run nature talks and walks that aim to engage you with the wildlife on the doorstep.
There are many species that share our country that often go overlooked. These are sometimes the most interesting plants and animals, yet are still almost ignored. This is also the case for many pest species that we regard as enemies.
This is something we want to change.
Whether it’s a talk indoors or an exploratory walk outside, we cover identification skills, ecology and stories of the local flora and fauna with our school workshops tying into the National Curriculum too.
This assists teachers deliver the curriculum whilst getting kids into the fresh air discovering their surroundings.
We run events throughout the year and will travel to any location across the UK.
At Nature Talks and Walks we believe one of the best ways to experience wildlife is simply to get out into the North West’s fantastic countryside or even in our towns and cities.
But if you’re unsure about what you’re looking for, this can become a daunting prospect. This is where our wildlife walks can help.
We work with school groups and organisations across the UK leading groups around local green areas and exploring all aspects of the species found there.
Our walks are fun, interactive and educational and by increasing your knowledge of your local biodiversity, you can help affect its conservation.

To ensure all our customers are able to enjoy the natural world, we offer a range of nature talks that bring the outdoors indoors.
Perfect for many different organisations, we bring a rich array of natural items, photos, sound clips and video footage directly to you.
We are happy to travel to any location throughout Merseyside, Lancashire and Greater Manchester and indeed the rest of the country.
We currently have five main talks to choose from:
- Wildlife in the Garden
- The Secrets of the Waterways
- Wildflowers of Lancashire
- Enchantment of the Galapagos
- Up in the Clouds (Ecuador Talk)
We hold presentations in any indoor space with audience sizes ranging from a full village hall to a small handful of people for a more personal experience.
All electrical goods are provided, including a projector, laptop and a portable screen.
Through our presentations, you can enjoy a fun and interactive experience whilst discovering the enormous diversity of our wildlife and how you can help its conservation.
At Nature Talks and Walks, we provide educational sessions that help the next generation learn all about the British Wildlife that surrounds us.
Through a huge array of different wildlife topics, we help your teachers to back up the eco-knowledge your students have gained during school lessons.
It doesn’t matter how much or how little space your school has, there are always things to do that will help attract wildlife to your school grounds.
Our primary school sessions include:
- Learning about British Wildlife that can be found at school and at home
- Learning how you can attract wildlife into your school grounds
- Hands-on experiences
- All sessions directly link to the national curriculum
All sessions are taught, whenever possible, in an outdoors environment.
For a full list of the workshops we offer visit the various Key Stage Pages:
- Key Stage 1
- Lower Key Stage 2
- Upper Key Stage 2
Our talks assist teachers by planning everything for the sessions, including risk assessments, lesson plans and CRB checks.
Wildlife Holiday Tours
As well as running wildlife walks around the North West, Nature Talks and Walks also leads Wildlife Tours right around the UK.
With a love of nature across all the natural kingdoms, our holiday tours can cover any topic of British Nature. Often they offer the perfect British Safari, looking at everything from moss to eagles.
Nature Talks and Walks can show you how to spot and enjoy the country’s most fascinating species and highlight the best areas of any of our counties. Shropshire, North Wales and the Isle of Wight are just a few that we’ve hosted wildlife holidays in.
We currently work with HF Holiday to lead wildlife holidays right across the UK. There are still places available for the coming year on both birdwatching and safari holidays.
For more details about booking onto one of our tours, contact us for more information.
As well as offering guided wildlife walks, Nature Talks and Walks also provides volunteer training days to charities and organisations who are involved in public education.
Our training days are designed to teach all the essential skills and confidence your group needs to lead events for members of the public, whether they’re topic is nature or anything else.
Learning identification skills for different species can seem daunting, but with our training days we’ll show you some simple tips to help build up your knowledge.
Our training days cover:
- Wildlife Identification
- Local Heritage
- Communication Skills
- Health and Safety
We travel right across the country with our training events and we’ve been providing volunteer training to the Canal and Rivers Trust since 2012.
Through our wildlife training days, your volunteers or group will be able to organise and produce effective and engaging events.
This will help captivate their audience and, most importantly, spread the word about British Wildlife and the need for its conservation.
