Children, Outdoor Play and the Environment

We would like to help children acquire a knowledge of ecological principles.

Several activities will be developed to:

  • stimulate their interest for maintaining a balanced environment
  • promote public awareness
  • designate green spaces for relaxation, exercise and  play
  • develop their desire to protect the environment and to solve problems
  • help children practice habits and learn practical skills  regarding renewable and recyclable material

With our long-term partners at  Stomping Ground we have created work sheets to help children learn and interact with the environment which we have promoted on our Penrith in Bloom Facebook page and told our story for our colleagues at Cumbria in Bloom which you can view HERE.

To download click on the following sheets:


Check out Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s has developed Get Cumbria Buzzing project .

Download their wild bee guide and their leaflet on identifying hay meadow wild flowers.

Grab the Get Cumbria Buzzing recording form from Cumbria Bioversity Data Centre and note down what you see. They’d love records from all over Cumbria.
