Discover & learn

From school visits to family activities there are lots of opportunities for everyone to discover the natural world.

The main aim of the Trust's work is 'A living landscape rich in wildlife, valued by everyone in Derbyshire'. The People Engagement team works with schools to build on this philosophy by encouraging children to appreciate and protect wildlife in their school, in their community and in their own garden. Our wider aims are to:

  • Encourage children to have an appreciation of their natural environment.
  • Allow children to learn in different, exciting ways.
  • Promote an awareness of local and global environmental issues.
  • Provide opportunities to be actively involved in conservation work.

We also run a number of educational courses for adults - they're a great opportunity to pick up new practical or identification skills.
