Biodiversity in Primary Schools

We’ve noticed that many schools find planning biodiversity activities very daunting.  However, it doesn’t have to be a scary topic – for some some quick and effective actions you can take a look at the Biodiversity in Primary Schools – Let’s Get Started Action Plan.

The purpose of this booklet is to help you select the topics that are best for your schools, guide you in the right direction in choosing projects to undertake and highlighting the best resources out there. We focus on five areas: Birds, Bugs, Mammals, Ponds and Wildflowers.

This booklet was commissioned by the Heritage Office of Kilkenny County Council, and the Kilkenny Education Centre.  It is based on a booklet originally created to help seven schools in Kilkenny taking part in the ‘Biodiversity in Primary Schools Project” during autumn/ winter 2015.
