We are proud and delighted to be able to offer primary schools and home learners a variety of ways to learn about and engage with the wonderful world of Eden’s rivers.
During 2022, our Act for Eden’s Rivers programme is available to schools across the catchment. This cross-curricular programme not only introduces children to some of Eden’s Amazing Creatures, but also helps them learn about what healthy rivers need, and how to take action to reduce pollution and use water wisely. This is proving a popular programme, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to find out more and to book.
This programme is supported by United Utilities CaST account.
We have a variety of resources (with numbers growing all the time) designed to help spark interest and prompt further learning, such as:
