Inner-City Forest

Description

With the help of a park ranger, Highters Heath Primary School in inner city Birmingham, has converted a nearby patch of abandoned woodland into their very own natural setting.

Once a week, a park ranger leads small groups of children to the woods and shows them how to explore the world around them through play and problem solving.

The rangers believe that any school is never far away from a natural setting, whether it is a local park or an abandoned allotment.

Highters Heath is also developing its own forest by planting a copse and growing a hedge on its field.
