Biodiversity Project

CatepillarFACE promotes farm visits where children can find out how farmers look after the farm environment and thereby encourage a wide diversity of wildlife.

A folder of activities has been produced to accompany farm trips along with a poster highlighting the environmental work done by farmers today.
