What do birdboxes, bee hotels, den making kits, planters and nature experts all have in common? They are all available free to schools as part of Learning Through Landscapes new Local School Nature Grants Programme, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
LOCAL SCHOOLS NATURE GRANTS
The grants provide an assortment of nature equipment to the value of £500 and a 2 hour training session.
The packages are customisable, enabling schools to choose from a menu of 72 different items which best suit their learners and their setting. All schools in England, Scotland and Wales are welcome to apply, with training being most suitable for those who work with Reception to Key stage 3.
The aim of the project is to make it easy to get young people in touch with nature, and so the application process is quick and straight forward.
