FREE NATURE-CONNECTION PROGRAMME FOR SCHOOLS
The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) have recently launched their Generation Wild programme, which will connect 45,000 children and their families with nature.
It includes FREE school visits (including FREE transport), FREE visits for families and a specially designed website to encourage continued nature-connection activity at school, at home and in local greenspaces.
Children and their families will find themselves transported by a magical narrative as they meet Ava, a part-bird, part-human creature in a giant nest. Can they help her to find her family, fulfil her destiny and unlock some of nature’s wildest secrets along the way?
The programme is now open to schools in disadvantaged areas, with places offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
Eligibility criteria (based on % of pupils eligible for free school meals) vary across centres so please visit the Generation Wild website to find your nearest centre and see if your school qualifies.
The scheme is running at seven wetland centres across the UK.
