Funded education sessions through Access to Nature

Our active outdoor learning sessions take place in the great outdoors, often near animal exhibits and can be tailored to meet the needs of all ages and abilities.

We aim to make the sessions as inclusive as possible, engaging students with the natural world, and developing their social and communication skills.

While these sessions normally cost between £6 and £8.50 for each student, with an additional charge for the taught session, through Access to Nature you can apply to have a funded session, ensuring your students access the site for free.
