What are Nature Ninja awards?

  • These can be worked towards during Forest School sessions, or can be  engaged with on an ‘as and when’ basis when visiting the woodland
  • Attendance required for a minimum of 6 sessions to achieve the award and a certificate
  • The objectve of Nature Ninja awards  is to promote building a relationship between the learner and the natural world
