free school visits

Each year we have a number of FREE 2-hour school visits available for under 16's at both the Houghton farm and Aglionby wetlands.

 

Our FREE school visits are supported through Natural England's Countryside Stewardship Scheme - Higher Tier.

This enables and encourages us to farm with nature and also look after the woodland areas on the farm, the coppiced woodland along the River Eden and the grazed wetland areas.

 

The Stewardship Scheme also supports our education work both through the classroom Natural England funded at Houghton and the annual payments for our educational and care farming visits. More information on Natural England's work can found here.  

free community group visits

Each year we have a number of FREE 2-hour school visits available for community groups at our Aglionby wetlands.

 

We welcome community groups of all ages to the wetlands.

 

These are possible due to the generous support of the Moorhouse Trust which is managed by the Cumbria Community Foundation.
