Be a habitat hero this Outdoor Classroom Day

National Education Nature Park
Celebrating pupils in woodland

Join us for a special mission as we become habitat heroes!

Go to the Habitat Heroes activity

On Outdoor Classroom Day (Thursday 23 May 2024) we’re calling on children and young people to be champions for nature and find homes for wildlife in schools, colleges and nurseries across the country! 

By taking part in this nationwide, curriculum-linked activity, you’ll follow prompts to discover the homes for wildlife you have on your learning site – perhaps it’s pools of water where you could see frogs and newts taking a dip, a fence panel that spiders might use for spinning webs, or a pile of leaves where worms could hide! 

Upload your findings to see them alongside all of the other spaces for wildlife being discovered across the country on this day.

Whether you have already joined the Nature Park or not, this Habitat Heroes activity is the perfect way to take your learning outside this Outdoor Classroom Day, to connect to nature and see the impact we can have when we all work together. 

It's also great way to get ready to start your Nature Park journey. It will prepare you and your class for an essential first step in the Nature Park five-step process – mapping your site – so you can understand what you already have and focus your efforts on where it could be improved for both people and wildlife.

How to get involved

Don't forget to share what you are up to with us on 23 May using #EducationNaturePark, and for any questions you can get in touch.
