220_picnic_v2NAEE has just completed its third year of awarding bursaries to schools.

Known as Kenrick Days (after the late Hugh Kenrick), the bursaries are helping Birmingham schools to fulfil Anne Kenrick’s wish to see today’s generation getting outdoors, and learning about the environment, including growing and caring for plants.

our_filmsThe bursaries go towards the cost of taking city pupils to outdoor learning centres in and around Birmingham – including day visits to a farm.

Since the project began in 2012, over 2,000 young people have benefited from these visits, and last year, 14 schools took up the bursaries, visiting 4 of the outdoor centres in the scheme.
