Urban Nature Project- Explore: Urban Nature

We’d like to offer you an exciting opportunity for your school to be involved in the Natural History Museum London’s Urban Nature Project (UNP): https://www.nhm.ac.uk/about-us/urban-nature-project.html

Museums across the country, including Nottingham City Museums at Wollaton Hall and Newstead Abbey, are connecting teachers and new audiences of young people aged 9-14 to their local nature, and to global issues. In particular we hope to connect with those identified as having a low connection to nature.

We are working to inspire the next generation to care for the nature that surrounds them.

We are delivering

  • training for teachers,
  • curriculum-linked learning resources
  • hands-on outdoor workshops for pupils aged 9-14 which include: Ecological Fieldwork, Plastics in the Environment, Tree trails, Pond dipping/Water Investigation, Invertebrate (Mini-beast) Safari.

  • Ecology equipment for loan to schools : Ecology fieldwork equipment including, transects, quadrats, ID guides, hand lenses, sweep nets, invertebrate magnifying boxes, bat detector, moth trap, pond dipping equipment, museum specimens.

This project is fully funded and completely FREE to schools
