Linnean Learning

Linnean Learning wants to see a world where curiosity in the natural world is shared by all young people. We work with young people, teachers, parents and other adults to inspire the next generation to engage with world outside.

Linnean Learning projects are a part of the Linnean Society of London, which embraces the entire sweep of the natural world, encompassing science, history and art. The Linnean Society’s Fellowship ranges from leading professional scientists to amateur naturalists, artists and historians. The activities are classroom-based but also show how the concepts translate to the field.
