Environmental Education

The Sussex Wildlife Trust provides environmental education and teacher training to encourage the enjoyment and understanding of wildlife through life-long learning. Our activities and games are designed to support aspects of the National Curriculum, but we also want participants to be inspired to protect the natural world around them.

We offer environmental activities at out education centres at Woods Mill near Henfield, Seven Sisters Country Park near Seaford and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. We also work within school grounds and run Forest School, Wild Beach and Nature Tots programmes.
