We work with pupils and staff to assess your site for wildlife and work with children and staff to plan and design and plant up areas. We can also come in to rejuvenate existing areas. Habitat creation may include living willow structures, orchards, ponds, invertebrate habitats, hedgerows, wildflower meadows, a sensory garden, wildlife borders, bug hotels, habitat logs, stag beetle pyramids and a nectar border. We will leave you with a FREE management plan to enable you to look after it.
We provide all risk assessments, equipment and expertise and we have the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality badge. All our activities can be adapted to meet all learning needs.
