Become an Owlet!

New Moon

Owlets - junior friends of The Barn Owl Trust.

Becoming an owlet encourages children and young people to take an active interest in the world and wildlife around them. The children of today are the adults of tomorrow. Becoming an Owlet will help young people to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of the Barn Owl and its environment.


By becoming a junior friend of the Barn Owl Trust you will be helping us conserve this beautiful bird in the wild. For as little as 48p per week you can help us to continue our valuable work and ensure that Barn Owls are a sight to behold for generations to come.

As well as receiving the owlet pack, you will have the chance to actively contribute your ideas, pictures, stories and poems. We are always keen to hear from our junior friends and look forward to putting your contributions on our website and in future editions of ‘The Flyer', our newsletter especially designed for Owlets. Our website ‘Info for kids' pages are for you, so tell us what you would like to see more of and we will do our best to listen!

Owlets receive a pack which includes:

  • ID badge
  • Barn Owl mobile
  • Recycled pen and pencil
  • Notepad
  • Bookmark
  • Barn Owl pin badge
  • Full colour A3 poster
  • The ‘Flyer' our children's leaflet
  • A copy of our magazine ‘Feedback' twice a year
  • A colouring-in sheet

The Owlet pack also contains further information about Barn Owls and the Trust.


We do not have a visitor centre as our sanctuary is a place of peace and refuge for the owls and disturbance is kept to an absolute minimum. It is on private land with no public access. However, you can always come along to a LLP (Lennon Legacy Project) Event to see our work at first-hand and meet our staff see Forthcoming Events. Please note: We do not display live birds.

The Barn Owl Trust is dedicated to conservation & education and does not operate a visitor centre.
