New National Education Nature Park resources available!

A whole host of new resources and digital tools to support the first step of the National Education Nature Park process – ‘Exploring your site’ – are now online.

This includes mapping your site, an activity to help your learners connect to nature on their doorstep and understand their starting point, so they can get ready to plan how to enhance their sites for nature.

What’s your vision for the Nature Park on your learning site?

A great way to start your Nature Park journey, and the new year, is to try out writing a collective vision statement for your Nature Park with your class. Simply use the ‘Write a vision statement’ resource to get started. The Nature Park team would love to feature some of these vision statements on the website, so for your chance to be featured send your vision statements through to by Friday 26 January. They could be words, images or videos – feel free to get creative!

This month’s Nature Park webinar

Aimed at staff that work on their school, nursery or college grounds such as groundspeople, estates and maintenance staff, we will talk through the different physical changes that young people might identify as being the best way to improve nature on their sites and how you can support them to make these changes. These could range from rain gardens and raised beds, to tree planting and wildflower meadows.
