Learning Outdoors thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery

The Wildlife Trusts are very lucky to receive generous support from players of People's Postcode Lottery.

For a second year running, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has been awarded £66,000 to promote outdoor learning thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Children of all ages in Coventry, Nuneaton and Bedworth - from tots to teens - are benefiting from the project as it works to inspire the next generation.

Nature Tots sessions for pre-school children have been taking place at Limbrick Wood Baptist Church in Tile Hill, Coventry, and at our Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve.

The trust’s education team also provides Nature Club sessions at primary schools and in summer will again be giving teenagers a chance to swap screen time for survival skills with our unique Call of the Wild bushcraft programme.

The project enables children and young people to access, explore and enjoy the outdoors and the wildlife wonders that exist even within their urban boundaries.



Over the two years the project has been running, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has so far delivered more than 5,000 wildlife experiences for children aged two to 17. This has included working with more than 500 children across 18 primary schools, developing ongoing partnerships and building on previous sessions to give teachers the skills to continue providing outdoor learning for the future.

The funding is part of an incredible £2.8 million awarded in 2018 to The Wildlife Trusts thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, to connect people to nature through precious species, wild places and forest school learning.
