Gill Stevens Award will bring youngsters closer to nature

Schoolchildren in London will be able to get hands-on with nature thanks to a new award set up in memory of OPAL’s deputy director.

The Gill Stevens Award, which will run for five years, will enable seven school groups each year to visit one of the Royal Parks for a fieldwork session led by an experienced tutor from the Field Studies Council (FSC).


Running the marathon in memory of Gill Stevens

Graeme Castles, 47, is running his first marathon on Sunday 22 April. He is raising money for Trinity Hospice in Clapham, where his wife Gill Stevens died from cancer, aged only 45, in January 2011.

Gill Stevens was OPAL’s Deputy Director and a much loved member of staff at the Natural History Museum. She had a huge impact on the project in its first few years, working tirelessly to inspire people to take an interest in UK wildlife and do their bit to keep it safe.
