    Your local Tiny Forest offers great outdoor education opportunities. It offers rich connections to science, opportunities for meaningful connection to nature and cross-curricular links for creatively learning about environmental challenges and solutions in an inspiring green space.

    BECOME A CITIZEN SCIENTIST

    The ‘living science lab’ provides hands-on learning about flooding, soils, plant growth and biodiversity, all while using skills such as measurement, observation, data collection and comparison. It can also offer a safe space to step outside the comfort zone and gain exposure to different nature textures, colours and sounds.
