Country classes

23rd June 1995 at 01:00
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has introduced an outdoor teaching programme for 8 to 12-year-olds called "Second Nature" in addition to its "First Nature" scheme for 5 to 8-year-olds, which was launched last year. Trained teacher-naturalists take classes to an RSPB site in the countryside (there are some 30 to choose from) and reveal how creatures are adapted to live in certain habitats and how they depend on one another. Children also design their own creature and discover how they adapt in order to survive. Details from: RSPB Education Department, The Lodge, Sandy, Bedfordshire SG19 2DL. Tel: 01761 680551.
