Schools and Groups
The Bird of Prey Centre is the ideal setting for education visits. Many local schools, nurseries, youth groups, and organisations take advantage of being able to provide an outdoor learning experience. Whether it’s “The Owl Who Was Afraid of The Dark”, Nature Study, or a Conservation Topic, the lecture and the birds provided will tie in with a theme or project being undertaken by the particular organisation.
For schools and youth groups, we provide talks on the chosen topic, a quiz sheet to be completed, and where possible, a flying show to further enhance the learning experience.
Our education cabin contains many exhibits relating to nature and falconry. Feathers and eggs, skeletons and taxidermy displays, information sheets, and much more that illustrate how these secretive creatures have evolved to survive.
New for 2022 we have introduced our “Discovery Trail”. Using our guide booklet, visitors can follow the trail of questions and clues to discover more about our resident birds, wild raptors, and the local wildlife. Visitors will see the work we have done to conserve our local species, as well as improving the habitat for plant life. Our Discovery Trail may give you ideas on how you can contribute to conservation, or improve your knowledge of nature, conservation, and wild raptors in particular.
