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 an interactive, hands-on experience with the peatlands.


Due to the reserves visitor centre and field centre being easily accessible by train it makes it the perfect place for outdoor and environmental curriculum-based learning. A more detailed description of learning activities outside the classroom can be found here. The latest Flow Country Peatlands Learning and Teaching newsletter can also be found here. 


For higher education students we can arrange tailor-made visits for colleges and universities looking at the different aspects of peatlands, including lectures from specialist staff from one or more of our partner organisations.


Our field centre also offers overnight accommodation for up to 16 people, facilities include an education room and laboratory for use through the education team.


Further teaching resources and information can be found below.
