Environmental education and outdoor learning opportunities

A new country park environmental education pack has been published. The pack promotes the countryside ranger service as a free resource for local schools. It is structured around Curriculum for Excellence and provides lesson plans for countryside ranger led activities available within the country park or school grounds (if suitable). Suggested follow-up activities and self-led lesson plans are also included. Copies of the pack will shortly be distributed free to local nursery, primary and secondary schools.
