In the past 5 years, she has led a Young Rangers Project with the National Trust, worked on ‘Travelling Classrooms’ projects with GWR, which promote use of the local branch lines in Cornwall and Devon, as well as helping with gardening clubs and heritage projects which focus on our role in protecting local wildlife.

Most recently, Dani has led 2 large-scale, trust-wide environmental projects during the lockdowns, one with the Eden Project, based on the book, ‘The Lost Words’ and a ‘Nature in My Neighbourhood Project’ with the National Trust which gave children across Bridge Schools the opportunity to learn more about the wildlife in their local communities and become ‘guardians of nature’. The ‘Lost Words Project’ with Eden also led to children’s work being displayed at a special environmental concert with the author and illustrator of the book at the Natural History Museum in Spring 2021.
