Outdoor Learning

National Landscapes are excellent places of learning for all ages, offering a wealth of natural and cultural heritage to explore. 

Over the years we have worked with many young people in and around the Shropshire Hills, helping them to connect with and care about this special landscape. Much of our work with school children and teachers is focussed on the John Muir Award.  Named after the pioneer of the National Parks movement, the Award helps participants to discover and explore a wild place, to do something to conserve it, and to share their experience.
