Outdoor learning facilities
Our Education Centres are wonderful places for children to learn about our natural world. They are wildlife-rich venues providing indoor and outdoor facilities for schools, giving children the chance to escape from the classroom and get hand's on experiences that will stimulate and encourage learning.
What do we offer?
School visits to nature reserves
School visits to reserves allow children a chance to see the wildlife on their doorstep, learn the curriculum in a new way and have the chance to find their 'Wild Life'.
The Centres offer a wide range of activities to cater for all ages and abilities. From stream dipping and storytelling for early years, to transect sampling and orienteering for secondary schools. All our activities can be linked to the curriculum, and tailor made to suit the needs of your school, so the options are endless!
All three of our Education Centres are available to hire for meetings and group activities. Whisby Nature Park also benefits from an enclosed outdoor space exclusive for users of the Education Centre.
For more information and prices, visit our Centre's pages below.
Our Education Centres and nature reserves provide a great place for an away day immersed in the natural environment. From outdoor team building exercises to guided walks, a sleep-out under the stars to bushcraft and survival skills, our Education Officers are sure to give you an away day with a difference!
