    Abstract

    As part of a large scale research evaluation of The Wildlife Trusts’ learning in nature programmes for 7-11 year olds in England, the impacts and outcomes of six events were examined using ethnographic observation. The sample was 172 students, 15 teachers and 14 WT tutors. Evidence for learning ecology and geology in nature showed: high frequency of instances of ecology knowledge or application in all field events; high frequency of procedural skills (observation of phenomena) leading into building ideas and application and inquiry and problem-solving challenges promote collaboration and communication.
