Educational Visit to your Local Nature Reserve

All events are postponed until further notice.

Educational Visit to your Local Nature Reserve
The variety of habitats across Test Valley make it an ideal place for learning about the natural world. Across its number of Local Nature Reserves, pupils can learn about a range of different habitats including freshwater lakes and rivers, woodland and grassland. A visit to your nearest Local Nature Reserve can meet the needs across the curriculum and can be designed to be stimulating and enjoyable for all those involved.

Schools and groups are welcome to use the site at any time either independently or with a Countryside Officer, who can be present during your visit to act as a guide and to talk about the work that is carried out on site.
