Biodiversity in Schools Project
A successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for taking forward a Biodiversity in Schools project is enabling at least an additional 18 schools in Barnsley to benefit over a three year period to 2016.
The main aim of the Biodiversity in Schools project is to help children, young people and their parents appreciate the value of our natural environment and learn how to become involved in its conservation.
The project will raise awareness of natural heritage and biodiversity in 18 schools.
The approach has the school grounds as its focus and involves the school children in practical activities to learn about their natural heritage and to promote its conservation.
