Discover and learn

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust promotes involvement, enjoyment and understanding of the natural world.

Involving children ...

Outdoor learning and play has disappeared from the lives of many children across Britain, but Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is working to keep the tradition alive. 

Every year our education team take thousands of children and young people  bug-hunting, pond-dipping and geocaching. They visit schools and weave wildlife into every corner of the curriculum, organise youth activities and arrange family events all over the county. 

... and adults too!

Making sure people of all ages and backgrounds have the chance to enjoy nature and the landscapes of Staffordshire is one of the Trust's priorities. We regularly hold events such as guided walks on our reserves, run conservation volunteer groups and have a network of local groups who stage walks and talks.
