National Education Nature Park
Led by the Natural History Museum and funded by the Department for Education, the National Education Nature Park aims to empower children and young people across England to take action to protect the natural world. Learning through Landscapes and the Royal Horticultural Society are delivering the programme across early years settings, schools, and colleges, helping to connect children and young people with nature and increase biodiversity across their school grounds and outdoor spaces.
This free programme brings practical ideas and guidance to educational settings, together with learning resources to put nature at the heart of education. Through the National Education Nature Park, learners can map their school grounds, plan and make changes to their outdoor spaces, and monitor the difference they make. Together, they will create a vast network of spaces that support nature while helping children and young people to thrive. Visit the National Education Nature Park website to learn more.
