Since September 2010 the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve has been part of the Discover Primary Science and Maths Network. If your school is part of this program, please inform us of this when making a booking.

We are now taking bookings for our Spring/Summer program of workshops which take place at the Raven Nature Reserve.

All workshops involve pond dipping and bug hunting but these can then be paired with either trees or dunes.

In the tree workshop we will look closely at the trees of the Reserve, seeing which creatures depend on them, why they are so important, and how to measure and age a tree. What would a world without trees look like? How can we protect our trees?

The Dune workshop involves a walk from the education area, through the woods and onto the dunes, where we will look at what lives in the sand dunes and why they are such an important habitat. Then it’s on to the beach to talk about why we need to keep our oceans clean for us all.

Workshops usually start at 10am and last for 2 to 3 hours depending on age of children.

All workshops are free of charge.

If you have any questions, or wish to make a booking, then please call the Reserve on 01 539 3460.
