Whether you live in a city or in the countryside, you will find all sorts of nature on your doorstep.

Anybody can be an Outdoor Explorer. The brilliant Manchester Museum have made some short films that you can watch online. Explore the world around you – find minibeasts and study plantlife.

Don’t forget to share what you find too. Send the Museum a photo of your Outdoor Explorer’s field notebook on Twitter to  @MM_Connects or @MM_Families and use the hashtag #MMOutdoorExplorers.
