In addition to school visits, the Friends of Barnet Environment Centre encourages enquiries for other visits to this amazing resource – our nature reserve.
1. Volunteering for youth organizations
We work with other charities and organisations on specific projects on the nature reserve in which young people can learn basic skills in nature conservation, work collaboratively, enjoy working outdoors and know that their efforts will be appreciated by all visitors including the families supported by Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. To enquire about youth volunteering please contact the Environmental Education Manager by email.
2. Nature Activities for youth organizations
For example: Brownies, Cubs, Boys’ Brigade & Girls’ Association, WoodCraft Folk, …..this list is not exhaustive!
Come and visit your local nature reserve, the perfect place to explore the natural world. The nature reserve is set in 7.5 acres of woodland with a meadow, ponds and a woodland classroom. All our activities are supervised by experienced staff and are designed to be fun and inspiring. Whichever youth group you are from, we can meet the criteria of your badge work.
