THE CHATHAM GREEN PROJECT – Environmental and Alternative Education
WHAT WE DO
A dynamic, ever-evolving education programme including nature based activities for Primary, Secondary and SEN Schools that engages children and teenagers in exciting ways that stay with them long after their visit. An outdoor living classroom within 40 acres of wilderness in the heart of Essex, to discover, play and learn. We strive to give young people access to the environment and allow them to make their own connections with the natural world, whilst contributing to a sustainable planet. Our goal is to inspire the next generation to love and respect the environment and for this to be carried forward into adulthood. We offer an in-depth understanding of how the outdoors can benefit mental health and well being.

The Environmental Education team have been creating videos called Badger Cam for the last year. Using a night vision trail camera to capture the lives of the wildlife on the site at Chatham Green while we are all asleep. Over the last year our education officer has been creating videos of mainly Badgers, but also Foxes, Muntjac and Fallow Deer, Rabbits and lots more. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think. View the whole Badger Cam series here!
