Outdoor education

We can facilitate outdoor learning sessions for your class or group on a wide range of topics, helping to learn about your local environment, biodiversity and conservation. We’ll lead environmental educational visits to any of our countryside sites.

Popular subjects include pond dipping, minibeast hunts, shelter building and tree study, however we will consider all suggestions and aim to tailor the session to your requirements. We can also help facilitate the John Muir Award and Duke of Edinburgh activities, as well as fieldwork for older year groups.

Ranger-led activities are free of charge for school groups doing curriculum based studies or conservation activities. There is a charge for other activities, please contact us for more details.
