We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy wildlife and that people of all ages and backgrounds should have the chance to learn about wildlife and the natural world. 

Our outdoor education sessions allow pupils (and teachers) to connect with wildlife and get closer to nature through hands-on experiences. We are offering a variety of opportunities that can be tailored to complement your pupils learning objectives and link to the National Curriculum. 

Our  wildlife themed assemblies and workshops cover the following topics:

  • Wonderful wildlife - discovering our local wildlife from hedgehogs to pollinators and why they are so important.
  • Plants and wildflowers - Exploring our local flora, what habitats they can be found in and how they are important for other wildlife. 
  • Habitats and rivers - Exploring the range of habitats in our area and how each is important for our local wildlife, with a focus on our rare heathlands and chalk rivers. 
  • Recycling and sustainability - Looking at our impact on the world and what we can do to help the planet and local wildlife, including water and energy saving, recycling and climate change. 

If you would like to find out more about our out outdoor education sessions contact us at school@hmwt.org or call us on 01727 858 901. 

To help support our schools engagement programme we kindly ask that schools are able to make a donation or encourage their pupils to fundraise for the Trust. We’ll be more than happy to chat through the options and discuss what support works best for your school, as well as providing guidance on fundraising.
