Barnet Environment Centre is situated on a 7.5 acre nature reserve which is a “Site of Interest for Nature Conservation”. The Friends of Barnet Environment Centre is a registered charity which provides events for the local community and activities for schools in order to educate and inspire a lasting interest in and appreciation of the natural world. We maintain the reserve through regular volunteer work-parties and, in addition to educating schoolchildren, organise open days, children’s activities and youth projects.The nature reserve and Environment Centre are only open to the public for these events.
The Barnet Environment Centre is on the northern edge of High Barnet near the bottom of Byng Road. The nature reserve is marked on Google Maps as Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and the red pointer points at the Noah’s Ark E-Centre. This building has shared use as a classroom and space for our community events.
