Resources for Recording Species

These are some resources that you may find useful for any events or recording activities that you do throughout the seasons.

Please pay attention to the COVID restrictions and remember that social distancing is still important.

Recording Form

This simple recording form (PDF) can be used to give your activity attendees and encourage them to record any wildlife, plants, trees, flowers etc they see on their visit. Send the results to and we will upload them onto the NBN Atlas, where they will eventually appear .

Health & Safety/Risk Assessment

This sheet gives guidelines on health and safety, first aid, first aid kits and on doing a risk assessment when running an event or volunteer work party. It is the responsibility of burial ground managers to consider the safety of the whole site for the casual visitor. These guidelines are for groups running an event or work party as part of a conservation project.

Things to Do in Burial Grounds

This sheet explains how burial grounds can be excellent places for education, learning and enjoyable activities. Nestled in the heart of communities, they can be used as outdoor classrooms, full of natural, local and social history.

Activities for Children

Children love burial grounds. From the unusual markings on the graves to the wildlife around and about, there is plenty to see and do. We’ve included some of our children’s resources here in case you need a bit of inspiration for something to occupy them.
