Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust
Windsor Great Park Environmental Centre is a partnership project between The Crown Estate and the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT). Developed to enable young visitors to appreciate and enjoy the natural history and wildlife of the Park, the Centre is perfectly situated – its ‘outdoor classroom’ space includes extensive beech woodland and veteran oaks and open grassland with dipping pond and teaching spaces. The building provides a comfortable indoor teaching space which is fully-equipped with exciting resources.
BBOWT is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK. BBOWT has five education centres across the three counties to which are welcomed more than 10,000 schoolchildren each year and many hundreds of families.
Four programmes are offered at the Centre providing children from eighteen months to sixteen years with opportunities to learn about and engage with the natural world. Nature Tots is a monthly parent and toddler group, family events are held during school holidays, Young and Teen Rangers are the after-school wildlife clubs (8-16 years) and the schools programme provides curriculum-linked days for Early Years and Primary-aged children.
