What do bird boxes, bee hotels and nature experts all have in common?
They are all available free to schools and early years settings as part of Learning through Landscapes Local School Nature Grants Programme, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
This outdoor learning grant fund has two elements – a fully funded outdoor learning training for your staff and £500 of equipment for outdoor learning.
They are available to all schools, and early years providers must have at least 5 staff and a building – either stand alone or part of a school.
Next closing date is 29th April with other dates later in the year.

Tangleha Artists Collective (TAC) has secured funding to appoint an experienced Project Officer to assist in the development of the Coastal Path around Aberdeenshire, in the first instance between St Cyrus and Portlethen / Cove. This will tie into an Aberdeenshire-wide Coastal Path as a legacy project to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
They are looking for a self-employed contractor, sole trader or small company to build community capacity in relation to the coastal trail project, with a strong emphasis on partnership and collaborative working, facilitation, engagement and consultation, and involvement in collaboration with community groups, stakeholders, landowners and the public.
