Outdoor learning

What we do

Outdoor learning

A place for wild learning

We are passionate about getting people outdoors, connecting with the natural world and inspiring them to act on behalf of nature. We have been providing high quality outdoor learning space for adults and children for over 40 years and, with the addition of our brand new centre at Nower Wood, the opportunities are better than ever before!

No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced
David Attenborough
Classroom Session


We connect with schools through tutor-led visits and self-guided visits at our education centre as well as building stronger relationships with partner schools in key priority areas to work together to put nature in recovery.
