Drumnaph Nature Reserve is an incredible learning resource for school children, college/university students, community and conservation groups and visiting members of the general public.

Set within over 200 acres of mixed habitat including ancient woodland, bogland and traditional conservation farmland, the site boasts a wealth of opportunity for learning and educational purposes.

We are able to offer a wide variety of outdoor and environmental education opportunities that can tie in with Early Years Development through the Key Stages to Further and Adult Education.  Topics we can cover include Plant and Animal Identification, Animal Tracks and Signs, Growing and Lifecycles and Minibeasts.  These are an example of a wide range of activities we offer and we are happy to discuss your specific educational requirements to meet the needs of individual groups.

In addition to our educational packages, we can also provide trained instructors able to deliver outdoor activity sessions such as Archery, Orienteering, Nature Trails and Bushcraft. The term Bushcraft is used to describe a range of skills related to wilderness survival and traditional lifestyle practices. Our Bushcraft sessions include Natural Shelter Building, Fire lighting techniques, Wild Food Foraging and Animal tracking.
Throughout all the activities we run on the Reserve, we work hard to promote our ethos of care, responsibility and the sustainability of the Natural World.

However if you choose to spend your time here at Drumnaph Nature Reserve, our ultimate aim is for your experience to be interesting, informative and lots of fun!
