A wildlife haven on the edge of the city to inspire your class
Where once there were storage lagoons for pulverised fuel ash from the neighbouring Uskmouth Power Station and poorly improved land, there is now a nature reserve.
Newport Wetlands has grassland, woodland, reedbeds and mudflats. It is also home to a wealth of wildlife, including ducks, geese and swans, birds of prey, otters, frogs, toads, butterflies and dragonflies.
Pupils and students can explore all this for themselves by studying the environment of Newport Wetlands first-hand.
Visits focus on subjects such as science, geography, history, art and creative writing. Pupils will be able to work scientifically and learn new skills while they increase their knowledge of the environment.
We are happy to visit your school or college to promote the work of the RSPB and to deliver environmental education programmes. Outreach sessions can provide an introductory and/or follow-up session for a reserve visit. Outreach is offered subject to staff availability. Please contact us for further details.
