We have now restarted day visits to Folly Farm with Covid-19 safety measures in place. We are taking bookings for 2021 residential visits, with full refunds available. We are also offering workshops online and in your school grounds. Please contact us for a copy of our Covid-19 risk assessment and to discuss your requirements.

We are passionate about getting children outdoors, connecting with the natural world and inspiring them to act on behalf of nature. We have 40 years experience in leading and supporting high quality outdoor learning experiences, at our learning centres or in your setting.

Let us come to you

Our experienced staff can lead in-school workshops, following Covid-19 safety measures. We will explore your school grounds, discovering and learning about the habitats and species that live there, and discussing how to make your school even more wildlife friendly. During the pandemic we are also offering live conservation-related talks on Zoom for your class, on a wide range of topics including ‘nocturnal animals’, ‘taking action for nature’ and ‘conservation careers’.

We love the trip and come every year - all staff are excellent!
