A WILDLIFE haven, created to teach youngsters about the environment, has welcomed its first batch of schoolchildren.
The Habitat Survival Trust, near Henley-in-Arden, first featured in the Solihull News over three years ago.
Since then, trustee Molly Corfield said that the project had gone from strength-to-strength.
And recently the charitable trust saw the arrival of pupils from Dunnington CofE Primary School in Alcester.
The group were the first to take part in a new workshop, held at the trust’s purpose-built classroom.
“There’s been a lot of work over the past three years and it was great to have the children in,” said Molly.
“What we aim to do is teach pupils more about wildlife and how to care for the environment.”
The “living classroom” was created in a 12 acre site off Tanworth Lane , where 2000 trees have been specially planted.
School groups can take part in a range of activities such as pond dipping and walking on a nature trail.
