nature education

Vena Kapoor works with the Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF), Bengaluru on nature education, outreach and public engagement. She is fascinated by the natural world and enjoys sharing this passion and wonderment with children and young adults. She has a soft corner for spiders — taking unsuspecting people for spider walks whenever possible.

Students, especially in urban areas, do not get to spend much time outdoors and in nature. But, a small park, an empty or abandoned plot of land or garden in school or at home, even in a crowded city or town can transform into a nature hotspot! For example the bark of trees, leaf litter and shrubs are home to ants, mantids and spiders. Concrete walls and small water puddles can house moths, bees, wasps, dragonflies and even frogs!
