Education and learning

All our sites provide the opportunity to see nature at first hand, but many of them also offer additional educational and learning opportunities.

Not just from onsite interpretation with information about the landscape, the plants and the animals, but also formal educational activities with our rangers or partners, such as Forest Schools.

Some of our sites offer the opportunity to learn new skills from Bushcraft to horticulture qualifications.

We know that learning about the environment, in the environment can be inspiring regardless of age, so we offer activities and course for all.

Check out our list of events to see what’s available near you and contact the ranger for details.

 

School programmes

We do want to inspire the next generation of guardians of our green space and many of our sites offer outside the classroom learning.

Here are what the teachers say:

Teacher from Drumbeat School & ASD Service for children and young people with autism:

“A fascinating session and the children were interested and engaged throughout. They especially enjoyed the pond dipping and holding and finding small creatures. The activities also addressed the students’ auditory, visual and sensory needs (all have ASD). Excellent!”

Year 7 teacher, Geography Department, Prendergast Hilly Fields College:

“A fantastic experience especially for urban schoolchildren”

Many of us have a lot to thank the Land Trust and Green Angels projects for.  I may not have got my new job without doing the Environmental Education course you facilitated and Grow Green Liverpool wouldn't have existed either.  You've helped me to achieve something I've been trying to do for about 4 years now and I really appreciate that. Add to that the friendships we've formed too and that really is precious.
