The Kingfisher Award Scheme has been running in Cornwall for 11 years and is coordinated by Jacky Cherry.

The 2019 theme will be “What lives on a Dairy Farm?”

They will visit a dairy farm with a herd of 600 cows and explore what can be found in their stream, fields and woodlands.

The Activity Stations

  1. The Pond and Stream
    They hope to find different wildlife every day in this habitat. A great resource for showing food chains in action. 

    2. The Field
    They will visit one of the fields to see the cows and heard eating grass. They will learn about grassland management and how to ensure that the cows are kept healthy throughout the year. They will look at soil and discuss the importance of worms.

    3. The Wood
    Below the field they will enter the farm woodland, to look at the woodland plants and discover some of the smaller creatures who live there. They will focuss on the Oak tree - natures greatest survivor.
