Get your students closer to nature with our learning workshops for all ages and abilities.
We're inspiring a lifelong love of animals in the conservationists of tomorrow, helping students understand the need to protect the natural world. Our sessions are each linked to the National Curriculum, complementing your lessons in the classroom to help change students understanding of nature for the better.
Education workshops are FREE from 1 September to February half term. Workshops cost £45 per workshop from February half term to 31 August. They are designed for groups of up to 35 students. Multiple workshops can be run concurrently throughout the day to cater for a whole year group, key stage or school’s needs.
