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 hands on experiences that will stimulate and encourage learning.
What do we offer?
Educational 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, to transect sampling and orienteering. All our activities can be linked to the curriculum, and tailor made to suit the needs of your educational group, so the options are endless!
All of our Education Centres are available to hire for meetings and group activities. Whisby Nature Park and Far Ings also benefit from an exclusive outdoor space for users of the Education Centre.
