The Plymouth Woodland Project is based at Plymouth University and operates in woodlands across the city of Plymouth. Run by a Community Scientist from the University, we deliver fun, interactive sessions in your local woods, that enable children and young people of all ages to explore and learn about the natural world. Sessions are linked to the science curriculum and include activities to examine woodland mini-beasts, the importance of deadwood, woodland soils, the nutrient cycle, plant life cycles, wildlife adaptations, classification and environmental change. The project activities can be run as environmental surveys that contribute to real scientific research into Plymouth's woodlands. We cater for reception right up to sixth form, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements. We are funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund so our services are free of charge. Many schools in Plymouth have wooded areas in walking distance, and we can run the sessions in the area most convenient to you, so just get in touch if you are not sure where your nearest woodland is!
