Plantlife has been awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop ‘Building Resilience in South West Woodlands’, a project that addresses the conservation challenges faced by the South West’s internationally important Atlantic Woodland. Through the Future Scientists Programme, children in primary and secondary schools will be able to develop and take part in ‘citizen science’ activities, to help research and monitor these important habitats. Children will contribute to real scientific research, and help us, and the people that manage these woods, understand more about them and their plants. There will be opportunities for schools and outdoor learning centres to engage at different levels - this could be contributing to one of our woodland surveys, or designing and undertaking individual research projects with support from Plantlife, leading to a presentation of findings at a Future Scientists conference. We want to hear from interested schools and outdoor learning centres in and around the Quantock Hills, Exmoor, Dartmoor, North Devon and Cornwall and appreciate you contributing to this survey.
