Stepping Stone Forests For Schools

Stepping Stone forests for schools are excellent educational tools that  enhance the knowledge and appreciation of nature in children.

These forests are small, dense,  native woodland habitats on the grounds of schools. Stepping Stone forests are  outdoor  classrooms. The little forests provide an opportunity for classes to spend time outside learning about nature. Children grow and mature along with the forest.  There are  a lot of reports and online materials that demonstrate the fantastic benefits for children of being exposed to forests and to learning in a natural environment. Please see below for some links.

The addition of a Stepping Stone forest to the grounds of the school can be a significant addition to the Green Schools program.
