What there is to see and do :

We provide an inspiring day for children and adults. At Sea Mere young children can study a range of natural habitats, catch and examine small creatures, learn how to use magnifying equipment, pond dip, and explore natural woodland to discover what lives there and how woodland is managed. All under close supervision. The visit will awaken their fascination with the countryside. Excellent tuition and access to the Study Centre classroom for indoor work. We also provide training for adults wishing to learn about the countryside and rural pursuits.
