Connecting kids and nature

We are passionate about getting children outdoors exploring, learning about and conserving our wild places.

Our experienced education officers deliver a wide range of practical workshops in the classroom and outdoors, for all ages and abilities.

Whether it’s cooking over a campfire in your school grounds, making recycled paper in the classroom or pond dipping at one of our flagship nature reserves at Langford Lakes or Lower Moor Farm, we have something to offer everyone.

In the classroom we provide exciting activities covering a range of environmental topics, such as climate change, energy, water, recycling and composting.

Our interactive assemblies are also a great way to get the whole school thinking about how to live more sustainably.

We have recently created new workshops on popular school topics, including rainforests, the Romans and arctic environments, and we are always happy to develop new activities to tie in with your curriculum.

Bringing children closer to nature is what we are about, and we can deliver hands-on workshops in your school grounds or local green space.

If you long to improve your school grounds then look no further, as we offer a comprehensive school grounds service.

Risk assessments for all our activities are available upon request.
