Enhance your visit with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust

In partnership with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, Trentham Gardens are pleased to announce two different supported workshops for school group visits, Naturally Art and Watery Wildlife.

Naturally Art is made-up of activities which take place at various points within Trentham Gardens. These activities have been designed to help children become more visually aware of their natural environment. Children will have the opportunity to sketch, explore and discover the Capability Brown landscape whilst being guided by the session leader.

Watery Wildlife gives an insight into the diversity of life associated with freshwater. Children will investigate the type of creatures living in the water, gain an understanding of life cycles, the relationship between the creatures as well as investigating different micro-environments within the water.

Half Day: £7.50 per child with a minimum group size of 15

Full Day: £9.00 per child with a minimum group size of 13
