Environmental and Education Programme

All ranger-led sessions are linked to National Curriculum and Cornerstone projects , most are suitable for Primary age  pupils and KS3. Each session lasts for one hour and can be tailored to fit groups of any age or ability. 

 

The Forest Lodge is the base for all school groups and is a great place for leaving bags, having lunch or using as an indoor learning area.


The park offers a range of activities for schools, including ranger-led sessions, self-led/ teacher-led sessions  and ranger-led walks and talks.

 

The park also has an Augmented Reality app -  Porthkerry AR - this app will allow you to bring parts of the park to life as you get out and explore. Meet some of the characters from the park's history, collecting virtual plants and animals along the way while you look out for the real ones and collect myths and legends from around the park with the story trail .
