Outdoor Learning

Every year we help around 6500 people to learn about their local environment through outdoor learning workshops and interactive walks and talks. In addition to school sessions, we offer learning opportunities to community groups and individuals.

For many of our visitors the outdoor learning programme is their first chance to get up close and personal with the natural world.  To ensure they get the most from their visit, our team has developed an exciting array of activities that we can offer all year round and tailor to the needs of those taking part.

We think it’s important to deliver something that is fun as well as informative, and to give all participants an understanding and appreciation of their local environment that will help ensure the parks are valued and respected in the future.

Our sessions are heavily subsidised by the Parks Trust as we believe that everyone should have access to outdoor learning opportunities and to gain understanding and love of their Parklands. By doing this we hope that the citizens of Milton Keynes will help us to protect our Parks forever, and be the most environmentally responsible citizens of any town (or City) in the UK.

    Always a fun and informative evening. Just to say thank you for this – we really enjoyed it. Thank you once again; learn something new each time and the bat fossil was amazing.
