Your school grounds

There are lots of steps you can take at school without us. Any practical action that helps nature counts. This section contains suitable resources for you to encourage wildlife by creating places for them to feed, bathe and live.

It offers opportunities for you to develop your school grounds and crucially  to use what you create as a teaching and learning resource for you and your students.
