Explore the wetlands and its wildlife throughout the year, using our self-guided resources.
In winter, learn about migratory birds at our daily wild swan feeds and witness thousands of swans, ducks and waders on the reserve.
In summer, investigate different ecosystems by using our equipment to go pond dipping, bug hunting and bird watching.
Keeping you and your learners safe
We continue to work hard to ensure that all learning visits are Covid-safe. We have always taken pride in our personal approach and we will work directly with you to ensure that your safety needs are met and any concerns addressed.
We are regularly updating our risk assessments for learning visits in line with the latest guidance. Your safety is our first priority.
Should you be unable to visit due to Coronavirus, we will allow you to re-book or cancel free of charge.
As well as taking part in a guided session there will be plenty of time for your group to explore the Centre. In order to make best use of this time, we have developed a range of self-guided resources which you can use to help extend your group’s learning.
What teachers say
"Our visit was worth every penny. It sparked a curiosity in the children which led them to go off and do their own research. What a great experience."
All our prices include full access to our centre for the day, so you and your pupils can enjoy all that we have to offer.
