The Great Plant Hunt

Create a Kew wildlife zone
In 2004 children from two local primary schools worked with Kew to develop, restore and interpret a natural habitat within the Gardens. This resource pack brings together their experiences and is based on the concepts and techniques that were tested or stimulated as a result of this project.
In the pack you will find an outline of the case study project at Kew, activities on habitats and wildlife suitable for outdoors and the classroom, cards for 140 plants and animals that can be used for research, games and display and ideas for developing a wildlife area at your school.

Green Talent is an exciting new initiative that combines a two day environmental experience at a national centre with a 'green' work placement.
Green Talent aims to inspire and empower 5,000 14 - 19 year olds from around England to make the most of their talents and skills and enable them to seize the opportunities opening up in the developing low-carbon economy. Young people will see how we are dependent on the natural world, how the world is changing, how businesses are adapting and how their future job and career choices will shape our transition to a low-carbon world.
