RSPB Fairburn Ings Nature Reserve

RSPB Fairburn Ings Nature Reserve

Bring your class to Fairburn Ings to witness for yourself this site’s wild learning experience. Shaped by a long history of mining, Fairburn Ings has been transformed from a coal face to wild place. Situated in the Aire Valley, a mosaic of wetland, meadow and woodland habitat are waiting for your class to explore.
Look for a flash of blue at our Kingfisher screen, search our meadows for minibeasts and find out what lurks beneath our ponds. Our purpose-built classroom, pond dipping and minibeast areas provide an up-close experience to explore topics such as habitats, food chains and adaptations in real life.
We have a number of programmes to choose from for a half or full day visit from Early Years, to Primary.
We also welcome bookings from uniformed and youth groups and can tailor your visit to suit your needs.
