Bug Storeys is all about learning to love, protect and nurture nature. It’s about conserving,
appreciating and interacting with our environment and the wildlife that inhabits it. Our purpose
is to capture the imagination and interest of children and adults all over Britain by engaging in a
whole range of exciting experiences, resources and activities designed to inspire a lasting
connection with - and respect for - British wildlife and the natural world.
We want to get children off the sofa, away from their screens and into the great outdoors.
We want to put colour back into their cheeks, get their hands dirty and help everyone to help
save native species for future generations to enjoy. We’re putting nature back into people’s
lives, one storey at a time.
Bug Storeys encourages interaction with nature on so many levels. It all starts
with the unique Bug Storeys Habitat, which provides protection, food and
breeding grounds for native creatures of all shapes and sizes – and helps
children and adults to better understand them, too. From bees to butterflies,
newts to hedgehogs, and everything in between, it helps you to put pollinators,
natural pest controllers and endangered species back into school grounds,
gardens and community spaces all over the country. How amazing is that?
Every Bug Storeys structure is unique. Built by one of our qualified Bug Rangers to suit your
specific environment, it is just the beginning of a whole new interactive learning experience
that grows year by year. From fun, informative workshops to themed talks, our
knowledgeable Bug Rangers have ecology, zoology and conservation credentials to bring
the Bug Storeys experience to life in memorable and inspirational ways:
