Enrich your Curriculum with Outdoor Learning

Written by: Elmtree Press

WWT Martin Mere has a 600 acre nature reserve plus 50 acres of waterfowl gardens where children can feed exotic and rare bird species by hand. At this time of year, our hands-on enquiry-led guided learning sessions include such topics as habitats in ‘What lives in this habitat?’, the differences between birds and humans in ‘What are the differences between birds and me?’ and migration and mammals in ‘How can we help migratory birds?’ or ‘How do mammals live in wetlands?’.

Whether you are looking for a hands-on exploratory investigation into wetland life and habitats, or wanting to understand the survival and conservation of wetland species, we offer a unique combination of guided and self-guided learning session suited to a wide range of ages and abilities. 

There are also lots of opportunities for your group to explore under their own guidance and discover some of the wilder places on site, through carefully-constructed walkways and hides.
