Explore Wildlife

At the Singleton Environment Centre you may take part in sessions designed for adults and those for children – see the calendar for events and courses.

‘Happy hearts and happy faces
Happy play in grassy places –
That was how, in ancient ages,
Children grew to kings and sages.’ (and queens)
Robert Louis Stevenson, A Child’s Garden of Verses, 1888

Explore the grounds

At any time the Centre is open you can just wander or follow a self-guided trail to explore.

Or, for children, hire a Scavenger sack.

Educational Visits to the Outdoor Classroom

Education visits at SEC

“School-age young people… are already consumers and citizens who make ethical and other judgements on a daily basis, and who have beliefs and values. There is, therefore, a responsibility on those who work with young people to ensure they are helped to contribute to a more just and sustainable future.”
Professor William Scott, Editorial, ‘Environmental Education’ Vol 120 Spring, 2019.

The Outdoor Classroom may be booked by schools and groups.
