Inspiring the next generation of wildlife warriors

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust offers lots of exciting opportunities for children to learn about the natural world - at our education centres, in your school or out on a local nature reserve or park.

We have a wide range of programmes and activities aimed at different key stages to complement the curriculum.

Whether pond-dipping in the spring, hunting for butterflies in the summer, looking for colours in autumn or making camp fires in winter, children will be having fun while learning.

All of our activities are fully risk assessed and delivered by skilled and experienced members of staff.

Forest School

Forest school

We offer training courses so you can become a Forest School Leader. Forest School is an holistic educational process that aims to raise self-awareness and self-esteem in an outdoor, non classroom environment. Forest School involves children/young people participating in small achievable tasks, connecting them with the environment and encouraging free exploration. We also come into schools and deliver Forest School sessions ourselves.
