What teachers say
“Steart Marshes was a brilliant site for our Geography and Ecology and Environmental Science students to explore saltmarsh environments and coastal change. The staff and volunteers were very helpful and enthusiastic, providing great insights into marsh creation and management, and the many important roles these environments play. Hope to return with students in future years!”
“It was a great opportunity for our Environment Students from the Royal Agricultural University to visit Steart Marshes recently. They were given fascinating insights into the practicalities of wetland restoration but also the key roles this plays in ecosystem service delivery and addressing climate change problems. A fantastic birdwatching opportunity too – the bittern we saw was a first for most of our students!”
