FOREST SCHOOL AT HOME

Happy World Ocean's Day!

Did you know that every other breath we take is thanks to oxygen released from sea? That makes it pretty special, as well as being home to all sorts of wonderful wildlife. 

Many of us (myself included) love the sea but haven't been able to visit for a while. But that doesn't mean that you can't make a difference - https://action.wildlifetrusts.org/page/61642/data/1


This June, join thousands of people taking part in The Wildlife Trust annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild! The aim is to do one wild thing a day throughout the whole month: for your health, wellbeing and for the planet. That’s 30 simple, fun and exciting Random Acts of Wildness.

Happy 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!

 

Today we celebrate our planet and one of its smallest most critical organisms.. 

The Bee!

Did you know? Bees pollinate 2/3 of our world's crops as well as 85% of the world's flowering plants! Wow!

Why don't you learn more about Bees and the important role they play! Email me with what you find out. Or make some Bee art and send me a photo?
