Educational visits for schools and youth groups are provided by the rangers at Stanwick Lakes throughout the year. A variety of subjects are offered suited to a range of age groups that are linked to the national curriculum.

Stanwick Lakes’ rangers also carry out educational visits for other audiences including scout and brownie groups and adults attending events to learn about the site and its wildlife.
Education is an integral part of our Heritage work and our Rose of the Shires Project was a good example of this. Schools and young people were involved in discovering more about the history of where they live – either by providing activities for schools to look at the heritage of their local area or by organising events at Stanwick Lakes. A highlight of this work was involving a number of schools in helping our volunteer group and local communities to build an Iron Age roundhouse at Stanwick Lakes. Since then there has been an annual Heritage Week for schools – discovering what life was really like 2,000 years ago!
