EARTH EDUCATION is…

the process of helping people to live more harmoniously with the natural world by…

  • Understanding how ecosystems work
  • Developing a long lasting love and respect for the Earth and its life-forms
  • Reducing their own impact on its natural resources

AN EARTH EDUCATION PROGRAMME is…

a carefully crafted series of learning experiences which …

  • Motivate and pull the learners in
  • Emphasise major ecological understandings
  • Involve exciting tasks that are both 'hands on' and 'minds on'
  • Weave activities together with a clear, easily remembered formula to aid comprehension and retention
  • Transfer the learning tasks to both school and home by developing good environmental habits.

We believe earth education is a serious task but getting to know the natural world is a lifelong adventure full of wonderful experiences and joy.

The children are supported by a specially trained team of leaders and volunteers to have the very best fun whilst exploring the forest, forging new friendships, gaining deep understanding of natural cycles, and of course developing a healthy nature connection.
