The Canal & River Trust is a charity, here to protect over 2,000 miles of waterways in England and Wales. We're custodians of a rich, living history but we look forwards to a brighter, better future too.
Canal & River Explorers is the main learning programme of the Trust, aimed at primary schools and uniformed groups such as Cubs and Brownies. We inspire children's learning by connecting them to our canals and rivers. Each canal and river is unique and offers powerful ways to engage children and bring learning to life. Our learning programme is closely linked to the national curriculum and group badges. Our dedicated volunteers lead inspiring visits on the towpath, in our museums or in your school or clubhouse.
