The content for primary schools has been divided into two different entities, Beaumont Quarry and otters. Beaumont Quarry is a disused limestone quarry left for nature in the heart of Cork. Resources about Beaumont Quarry can be used for a wide range of learning objectives such as conservation, trees, fauna and flora.

The second theme of the pack is otters. This is an opportunity for younger people to learn about the enigmatic otter. Cork Nature Network organised a children’s competition to name an otter for the education pack and the winner” Attie the Otter” will appear and guide learners through the content. Cork Nature Network encourages schools but also individuals, families and anyone interested in learning about our natural world to explore the contents of the education packs.
