A member of the Trust staff can visit your school (up to about an hour's drive from the Trust), accompanied by a British bird of prey, for fun and interactive sessions about raptors and the work of the Trust.
Our educational visits run for one hour and are based upon the National Curriculum. The format of the visit is an interactive talk and PowerPoint presentation. Topics covered include habitat, flight, food chains, British raptor species, the history of falconry and the Trust's conservation projects.
A question and answer session is included and there will be a chance to meet a British bird of prey - usually a Barn Owl or Tawny Owl.
Every child attending the session will also be given an admission voucher allowing a free entry to the Trust when accompanied by a paying adult.
Our educational outreach team are passionate and enthusiastic about conservation, biodiversity and birds of prey.
The cost of an outreach visit is £75.00 plus travel (at £0.40 per mile) for up to 50 children. Additional children are £1.50 each.
For more information about Outreach Visits, please email Educational Officer, Miriam Nicholls - firstname.lastname@example.org.
