Education & activities

From babies to grown ups - learn naturally with us

Wildlife Watch, Tom Marshall

We are working hard to ensure everyone in Derbyshire gets the chance to experience nature. 

To do this we organise hundreds of events and activities every year. From Nature Tots and Forest Schools - right through to our beginner's ID training programme for adults of all ages. 

But we don't stop there - we also work with schools and teachers across the county, offering school trips to nature reserves and activities such as pond dipping or building bug hotels, plus, we also visit schools - ensuring playgrounds are perfect for wildlife and teachers are clued up on all things wild!
