SWT Educational Services
Each year, Surrey Wildlife Trust works with approximately 8,000 children from across the county, providing wildlife education at three educational nature reserves in Surrey.
We believe that there is no better way to teach children about nature and biodiversity than by introducing them to the subjects in the great outdoors. Our fun, active and safe sessions are designed to focus on the importance of treating plants and animals with sensitivity and care. There is also a large emphasis on how we fit into the natural world and the need to look after the environment for the sake of future generations.
We also offer a range of workshops and events throughout the year:
· Schools Outreach Assemblies and Curriculum-Based Sessions
· School Grounds Advice
· Adult Education
· Environmental Birthday Parties
· Uniformed Group Sessions - Brownies, Scouts, Guides etc
