About

There’s so much to discover about nature on your doorstep.

Whether you live in a city or town, countryside or seaside, you will find all sorts of nature on your doorstep. Just like the scientists and researchers who have collected and studied our museum specimens, you too can become an Outdoor Explorer.

These resources will introduce the wonderful world of plant life and minibeasts with top tips to help you to get ready for an outdoor adventure and all you need to make your very own field notebooks.

Activities and resources have been designed for Outdoor Explorers aged 7+ years old, with adult supervision.

Share what you find and send us a photo of your Outdoor Explorer’s field notebook @MM_Connects @MM_Families #MMOutdoorExplorers
