We offer school groups the opportunity to connect to nature, to learn more about our local wildlife and to also gain an appreciation for the importance of everything within our environment. The students will have the chance to immerse themselves in hands on and practical exploration activities, from pond dipping and meadow sweeping to identifying plants and random sampling. Many of our workshops will also include plenty of games, discussions and chances to be creative with environmental art, to make sure the students are fully engaged throughout their visit.
