Outreach Programme

We can visit you in your school with our free Outreach programmes:

  • Giving Nature a Home — helps pupils map and score their school grounds for nature, identifying habitats that already exist and spotting opportunities for creating more
  • Bioblitz — encourages pupils to hunt for plants and minibeasts under every rock, bush and doormat
  • Big Schools' Birdwatch – using ID guides and binoculars, your pupils will identify and record the birds we spot around the school.

All sessions support Curriculum for Excellence Outcomes and Experiences 

For more information on Outreach contact gnahg@rspb.org.uk and a member of our team will contact you.

CPD Sessions

We also provide CPD for teachers and educational professionals, encouraging confidence (as well as plenty of activity ideas) in outdoor environmental education and learning for sustainability.

Various dates advertised throughout the year.
