LEWES OUTDOOR LEARNING
Nurturing Green Guardians
Lewes Outside Learning - Nurturing Green Guardians, is our New Education Program for Local Schools
Now more than ever we need young people to know and love their local nature, and to grow up with a sense of guardianship so they can play an active role in helping to create a green, sustainable future.
The Trust has a wonderful mosaic of habitats throughout the seasons. Educational adventures will stretch between woodlands, meadows, ponds, and wetlands. We have a purpose built environmental education centre and advanced technology such as digital microscopes and webcams - all of which will create a truly memorable school visit!
With woodlands full of birdsong, water meadows brimming with invertebrates, and ponds with frogs, newts and dragonflies, there are so many opportunities to learn. Perhaps a heron, an egret, or even a peregrine falcon will be nesting nearby.
The Railway Land Wildlife Trust is a small, independent wildlife trust. As a local team in Lewes, we are always happy to tailor our sessions to your specific learning objectives. An excellent way to get the students excited about the nature surrounding them!
What School Learning Sessions do we Offer at
The Railway Land Nature Reserve?
Where is the Railway Land and Wildlife Trust?
Situated in the Ouse Valley, the river borders the Railway Land Local Nature Reserve, providing an excellent teaching resource for physical and human geography. The whole site is a positive example of regeneration and changing land use, having previously been extensive railway sidings.
We are an accessible site and are near to transport links, and encourage schools to consider travelling to us by sustainable transport.
The Sussex Community Rail Partnership may be able to assist on your journey.
