Queen Elizabeth Parks Project Team Members returned to West Meon School recently to take part in the School’s Open Day.
Rangers Joe and Steve ran sessions on what it takes to be a Park Ranger and manage a Nature Reserve.
The pupils learnt about wildlife monitoring, looking after the habitat and visitor management as well as undertaking tasks such as building bird boxes, collecting insects and learning about wildlife.
The pupils asked some fantastic questions and were fully engaged in the day. Ranger Joe said ‘ The children worked really hard and had amazing knowledge, they seemed to enjoy meeting the Slow Worm and playing the environmental games’
The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project will be visiting Mahyoro School in July and will be sharing their experiences at West Meon with pupils and teachers.
