Perthshire Primary Schools Birdbox Project was delivered by Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust in partnership with GreenTweed Eco. The project aimed to provide young people with bird boxes and information on how to monitor them and care for the birds and other wildlife that may live in them.

The first year of this project – the Highland Perthshire Primary School Birdbox Project, saw 350 boxes delivered to 35 schools across Highland Perthshire, and to the North and West of Perth. This project was generously funded by The Basil Death Trust, The Jimmie Cairncross Charitable Trust, and Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust (PKCT).

During the second year of the project a further 350 boxes were made and delivered to 35 state primary schools across the rest of Perth and Kinross. 

PKCT have produced a free resource pack to accompany the birdboxes, which can also be accessed and used independently. Simply follow the link to find out more: OLCreate: PUB_6019_1.0 Birds in Scotland – For Primary School Children and Teachers (CfE First–Second) (
