The Wolseley Centre, Nr Rugeley
Set in informal gardens and countryside with many wildlife habitats including rivers, meadows, ponds, wooded areas, the Wolseley Centre is the ideal place for environmental learning. In March 2019 we will be launching a brand new eco friendly learning hub thanks to a £318,000 grant from BIFFA Award. The purpose-built building will feature cutting-edge environmental and accessible design that delivers the perfect space for learning about nature in harmony with the natural landscape in which it will be located. See below for programmes available.
Westport Lake Visitor Centre, Stoke-on-Trent
Based inside the visitor centre at Westport Lake, the Education Centre is well-suited to deliver education programmes. The centre has modern classroom facilities and is in easy reach of the lake, woodland areas, meadows and a canal. See centre programme availability below
Highgate Common, South Staffordshire
This lowland heath is a haven for wildlife and a great location for children to discover nature and the outdoors through environmental education activities. Located just eight miles from Dudley, the brand new building includes a well-equipped large classroom. Download centre programmes descriptions below
