Natural England Fund - Schools Project
Practical Conservation Project for schools with LCSP
Thanks to funding from Natural England we were able to get 7 schools (we were aiming for 6!!) out to visit a chalk stream in the Wolds area last year! On the visit we talked about the importance of the stream habitat, the life it sustains and how this fits into the wider ecosystem. This was followed by a practical activity to ‘stream dip' for invertebrates that the pupils then identified using given keys.
All the equipment for the activities was provided for them to take away as part of the funding to encourage further trips and activities in the future. The funding also allowed us to pay for transport so that schools from Lincoln and Cleethorpes were able to travel into the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds to one of our rare chalk streams.
We are always interested in educational work, so please get in touch if you'd like us to come and talk at assemblies or to individual classes about the chalk streams.
Please get in touch with our Monitoring Officer, Will Bartle if you'd like more information about the project:
