Go Wild with the Melton

We are inviting local primary schools to apply for a share of a special £8,000 Wildlife Fund to provide opportunities for children to learn outside and broaden their knowledge and understanding of the natural world.  The programme will be delivered in Spring 2018 by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and schools can choose from:

  • A 6 week Forest School programme for up to 14 children, either in the school grounds or off site
  • Selected curriculum-linked Environmental Education and/or Woodland Workshops
  • School grounds improvement and/or development, which could include some of: raised beds; a micro pond; wildlife friendly features such as nest boxes, birding feeding station, benches and screen, pollinator habitats and homes; a minibeast trail or a covered seating circle

For further information, please visit www.lrwt.org.uk/learn-discover.

The Melton is working with the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust to raise funds to protect wildlife and encourage enjoyment of the natural world. Supporting wildlife and the Trust ties in with the Society’s community ethos and its commitment to supporting sustainability.

Grants are available for a maximum of £1,000 for primary schools local to the Melton’s branches in Oakham and Melton Mowbray.
