Learning & Teaching
Education in The Flows
RSPB’s Forsinard Flows National Nature Reserve offers a range of great learning opportunities.
We can work with you and your students to create a really interactive, hands-on experience with the peatlands.
The Flows Lookout provides great views that help you understand the pond systems and the wider landscape, as well as shelter when you need it. It’s a 15-minute walk across peatlands from our visitor centre. You can go pond dipping at the Lookout too. Our new residential field centre offers overnight accommodation for 16 people, and facilities include an education room and laboratory. Get in touch to book a visit or for more information.
The Highland Council’s Countryside Ranger Service also offers a variety of environmental learning opportunities and activities, many of which take place in and around The Flow Country.
The Flows Field Centre
Our Flows Field Centre offers great opportunities for residential visits. This fantastic building offers everything from group accommodation to a classroom and a laboratory. Download the brochure (PDF).
We can arrange tailor-made visits for colleges and universities looking at aspects of the peatlands, including guest lectures by specialist staff from one or more of our partner organisations.
Our key partner for higher education and research is the University of Highlands and Islands (UHI). The residential field centre offers multi day opportunities for higher education and research. Please get in touch to discuss ideas and possibilities.
