People’s Postcode Lottery charity partner Northumberland Wildlife Trust (NWT) has launched an education pack to help teachers and youth group workers lead outdoor environmental activities. The pack is aimed at children aged 4 to 14.

The pack focuses on activities at

  • Big Waters (Brunswick Village)

  • St Nicholas Park and Fencerhill Wood (both in Gosforth)

  • Weetslade Country Park (near Dudley)

  • Prestwick Carr (outskirts of Newcastle)


However, many of the activities are suitable for a variety of different parks, nature reserves and school grounds.

Activities in the pack include pond and stream dipping, leading minibeast tracks and trail hunts and the ever-popular scavenger hunts. Each activity has full instructions detailed for the leader, lots of useful facts and great handouts.

The pack has been produced with funding from several organisations, including the People’s Postcode Lottery.



The packs are available from Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s St Nicholas Park Head Office for a £10 donation, in printed or CD format. Copies are available free to groups booking other sessions with Northumberland Wildlife Trust. You can contact Northumberland Wildlife Trust at mail@northwt.org.uk to find out more about the pack.

To date, People’s Postcode Lottery players have raised over £241,200 for Northumberland Wildlife Trust. If you would like to learn more about this great charity, visit the Northumberland Wildlife Trust page on our website.
