His Royal Highness Prince Harry visited The Wilderness Foundation’s Chatham Green Project in September.
The Prince and his future wife Meghan Markle chose The Wilderness Foundation UK as one of seven charities to receive donations in place of wedding gifts in May 2018.
The Chatham Green Project is a farm education and conservation initiative on 400 acres of farmland in Essex.
The project investigates how to utilise land more effectively to better balance the 21st century needs of farming, nature and communities and provides National Curriculum linked educational activities for over 3,000 school aged pupils each year.
During his visit Prince Harry met with pupils engaged in a range of outdoor learning activities, all underpinned by the principles of Leave No Trace.
The Wilderness Foundation works to connect people with the natural world. They educate a wide audience, particularly young people, about the value of wild native and natural landscapes, creating stewardships into the future. They work extensively in native based settings, working on the personal, social and environmental outcomes that come from experience of the outdoors with a focus on healthy biodiversity and people.
