NWWT offers you a variety of local opportunities to learn more about the wildlife around you!
Young People'We believe that every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances.'
(Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto)
At a time when young people are better-informed about environmental issues but also increasingly cut off from direct contact with nature, NWWT provides opportunities to discover the outdoors first-hand. In sharing our passion for wildlife and wild places, we aim to inspire young people, sharpen their awareness, involve them more in their own surroundings and engage them with examples of conservation and sustainability in action. Above all we offer the chance to get out in the fresh air and experience the ever-changing and unpredictable natural world around us.
Families are welcome to join us on a wide range of wildlife walks and events throughout the year. Take a look at our events pages to find out what's going on near you.

Teachers / tutors / leaders
NWWT is a recognised provider of outdoor education and works with primary and secondary schools and colleges throughout North Wales, as well as with other young people’s organisations – scouts, guides, after school clubs etc. Our education staff provide guided walks to reserves, specific educational activities (both on-site and in the school / school grounds), illustrated talks and indoor activities including wildlife-related games. We can adapt activities to suit particular National Curriculum requirements or to fit in with themes, projects etc. In some cases we have also prepared material for teachers / tutors relating to nature reserves. We can provide suggestions for activities that enable them to plan their own site visits and projects. Please get in touch for more information.
For older pupils / students we can provide opportunities for practical experience such as supervised involvement in conservation work and habitat management or bushcraft school-type activities. Such activities can fulfil elements of schemes such as the John Muir award or provide a chance to learn particular practical skills as part of pre-vocational education.
