West Cumbria Rivers Trust want children to appreciate and experience our fantastic rivers! Our standard rivers programme, involving one day in the classroom and one day on a field trip,  is aimed at upper KS2, and we can also offer a range of opportunities for older and younger children. Our activities are all risk assessed and led by our Education and Outreach Officer who has many years’ experience both in the classroom and delivering environmental education. With thanks to our funders we can offer our sessions for free to schools in Copeland and those within 10 miles of United Utilities’ Keeping Cumbria Flowing pipeline, however we can also deliver to any school within Copeland or Allerdale.

If you are interested in any of our education work, please contact our Education and Outreach Officer Rebecca Neal
