The Outdoor and Woodland Learning project encourages education about the area’s natural environment in order to nurture a legacy of understanding and respect. It is the central access point for all school activities associated with the Landscape Partnership projects delivery.

The aims of this project are to:

  • Work with schools in, and associated with, the CALL project area to deliver and facilitate Outdoor Learning Sessions on a regular basis.
  • Demonstrate the broad range of themes which can be taught outdoors.

Work closely with schools and teaching staff to assist with training and development to ensure that the project will have a largely self-sustaining legacy.
