Wildlife its all about us. Our work with people is about making connections and getting people in touch with their natural environment.
We run a year round programme of activities for schools at our two Environmental Education Centres at Willsbridge Mill and Folly Farm. Willsbridge Mill is an old corn mill set in a rural oasis midway between Bristol and Bath. Our newly renovated Folly Farm centre is in a stunning historic landscape and offers residential as well as day visits.
Innovative, exciting and interactive activities means that our well established education programme continues to inspire visiting young people.
During school holidays we run family events such as Bushcraft, Bird Box making, stream dipping and mini rafts so that our Junior members and their parents, adults and children can together explore and engage with wildlife and learn to value and care for it.
Community events that celebrate seasonal festivals such as Apple Day, Tree Dressing and Wassailing bring in a wider audience to get connected with the natural world and learn to live more sustainably.
