Landscape (UK) - - Our Landscape -

Daws Hall Cen­tre for En­vi­ron­men­tal Ed­u­ca­tion of­fers vis­its across all ages and ar­eas of the cur­ricu­lum and tai­lors each visit to the spe­cific re­quire­ments of the group, syl­labus and sea­son. The re­serve of­fers fan­tas­tic habi­tats, fa­cil­i­ties and re­sources avail­able for day vis­its and field cour­ses alike. The re­serve is ideal for en­vi­ron­men­tal stud­ies in biology and ge­og­ra­phy and is able to of­fer unique ex­pe­ri­ences such as small mam­mal trap­ping, moth trap­ping, di­rect ac­cess to the River Stour and trib­u­taries, and ex­am­ples of chang­ing plant com­mu­ni­ties. The 25 acre, pri­vately owned site, is also the ideal tran­quil set­ting for art, pho­tog­ra­phy and me­dia. The team are pas­sion­ate about pro­vid­ing ex­pe­ri­ences across the sea­sons to ap­pre­ci­ate the full beauty of the re­serve. The Stour val­ley has long been in­spir­ing artists. Thomas Gains­bor­ough painted a view of Stour cliff, now part of the re­serve, while John Con­sta­ble painted Daws Hall it­self. In ad­di­tion to cur­ricu­lum led pro­grammes, the cen­tre also of­fers al­ter­na­tive learn­ing op­tions such as mind­ful­ness in na­ture, for­est schools/bush craft, team build­ing, and en­vi­ron­men­tal ethics. It also wel­comes fam­i­lies, pre-school groups, so­ci­eties and adults with dis­abil­i­ties along­side schools. Daws Hall Trust is pas­sion­ate about the natural world, con­ser­va­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity and takes great pride in pro­vid­ing in­spi­ra­tional out­door learn­ing. To date over 100,000 school­child­ren have ben­e­fit­ted from vis­its to Daws Hall and it aims to in­spire many more in the fu­ture.
