Your wellbeing is our priority. Your NHSN team are busy working for you from home whilst the office in the Great North Museum: Hancock remains closed.
All your regular NHSN indoor and outdoor activities are suspended until the government lockdown is lifted. You can still be inspired by the natural world and we have some ideas for you.
Help capture a moment in time by contributing your notes of a lockdown naturalist. We want to capture your Notes from a Lockdown Naturalist; a snapshot of your thoughts and reflections. You could write a short paper, create some art, compose a poem. It’s up to you.
Discover nature closer to home in your garden or daily exercise and help stop their decline. Join the North East Bee Hunt.
Gosforth Nature Reserve is now open for NHSN members. Events and access for non-members are not yet available to help limit contact between visitors and volunteers.
To stay safe and ensure you have a great visit, please read the temporary visitor information available on our website. Please observe social distancing at all times when visiting the reserve.
You can also help us explore ideas for wilding the neighbouring areas. Take part by completing our survey.
We’ve been creating a new compilation of North East nature videos for you to enjoy.
Your NHSN eNews will increase in frequency to keep you updated of latest news and announcements. Keep watching your email inbox.
Whilst facilities are closed, NHSN archivist June Holmes is featuring new stories on social media highlighting our natural history collections.
If you have NHSN Library books, please return them by hand when the Museum reopens. There will be no late fees.
We hope you stay safe and well during this difficult time. Do keep in touch through social media and email. Throughout the coming weeks, we can be reached at email@example.com and on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
