Schools that have begun to develop their grounds often invariably report that this has led to beneficial changes in the relationships, attitudes and the atmosphere of the school in general.

Financing the project

Once the site of the wildlife area has been decided on, the next stage is to apply for financial help!  Head over to our Roots to Green Living resources page to find out more and find links for funding.

A county council, city council or London Borough usually has a number of officers responsible for local environmental management, and a conservation officer will probably be very happy to help out with advice as well as, hopefully, financial assistance!
