Working with Young People

New Shoots is a nature, wildlife and conservation programme designed by and for young people.  New Shoots is a fantastic chance for 14 – 20 year olds to visit beautiful places in the central Chilterns, learn more about wildlife and plants and how to help them thrive. Plus get involved in helping to manage habitats for wildlife and address climate change, and all free of charge thanks to our National Lottery Heritage funding!
