Our wetlands at aglionby

Our wetlands are the ideal place to learn about various habitats, exploring the plants and the animals that live there. 

 

This aerial shot shows you the location of the education room, composting loo and various boardwalks that surround two of the ponds. 

 

With adjacent woodlands and hedges, the wetlands is a vibrant wildlife habitat in which to explore. There are many opportunities to link learning to the National Curriculum and of course, just being outside is a welcome tonic.
