Many children, due to geographic location do not have regular access to woodlands or the countryside. BOP provides annual trips to places of scientific interest and natural beauty by way of giving pupils the opportunity to enjoy nature and relate the connections between ecosystems and everyday life.
There are free options for deprived pupils, and for schools in certain ward areas. Ask for more details.

BOP ABROAD – THE PHILIPPINES – link your school up.
Within the framework of our programme we aim to encourage schools on Merseyside to link with our counterparts in the Philippines to exchange ideas and local information. The objective is to gain knowledge about what happens environmentally within communities in less advantaged countries. We intend to evoke a realisation, that despite distance, we are all in this together. What we do locally affects and impacts upon life on the other side of the world. To take responsibility as a community for nature’s heritage and by becoming leading voices in awareness campaigns we are able to affect change and a better future for all.
