About Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
We care for over 70 nature reserves across the county, including a mixture of valuable wildlife habitats ranging from beautiful wildflower meadows to splendid ancient woodlands. We engage the local community through events, education and volunteering opportunities and seek to ensure our county is a healthy and wildlife rich place to live.
Working with schools and local communities
We have an extensive education and community programme which promotes learning for life. Much of our work with schools takes place on our nature reserves, and we have dedicated facilities at three main venues in the County: Attenborough Nature Centre, in the south, and The Idle Valley Rural Learning Centre and Cottam Environmental Education Centre (in partnership with EDF Energy) in north Nottinghamshire.
We also deliver sessions in schools and can advise schools on improving their grounds for wildlife, play and study. We are very keen to link schools with nature reserves in their vicinity. Our experienced education team delivers a formal education programme encompassing all age groups. We also provide adult training and teacher inset days.
