Environmental education - children learning in an outdoors setting

Rediscover Nature can provide bespoke workshops, and environmental education within Oxfordshire for individuals and groups of all ages. Take a look below for some sample packages, or contact me to tailor an experience to suit you.

Children

This generation of children needs to be more aware of nature than ever before if they are to face the challenge of our changing world head on.

I can offer bespoke educational experiences to help foster a sense of enthusiasm and custodianship of the natural world in children of a variety of ages. These experiences can help children:

  • gain the ability to identify common species of animals and plants
  • understand the importance of conserving key habitats that support this wildlife
  • provide an introduction to essential ecology skills and experience first-hand what a career in this sector might involve.

Contact me to tailor your experience and discuss how I can help your school or home-educating group!

Adults

In today’s stressful digital world, immersion in nature can provide much needed breathing space, an opportunity to practice mindfulness and a chance to learn new skills and knowledge.

I can provide bespoke environmental education for individuals or groups of adults who would like to reconnect with nature and learn a little more about the habitats and species around us in Oxfordshire.
