Education & Outreach

Calling All Teachers:

Outdoor Learing at Evanton wood can support many of the aims of the curriculum for Excellence and can offer a diverse number of approaches to teaching.  From numeracy to literacy to science and the arts, the ever changing nature of evanton woods and its variety of habitats can help make learning fun and challenging.

Gie me ae spark o' nature's fire,
That's a' the learning I desire;
Then tho' I drudge thro' dub an' mire
At pleugh or cart,
My muse, tho' hamely in attire,
May touch the heart.

Robert Burns 'Epistle to J. Lapraik'
