Wild Trout Trust

Founded in 1995, The Wild Trout Trust (WTT) is a registered charity that works to conserve wild trout throughout the UK and Ireland by encouraging people to protect and restore their habitat. We're small, efficient and focused: with lots of voluntary support we act as catalyst for national ans local enthusiasm, stimulating hands-on habitat improvements at a community level.

Story

We aim to raise £5000 to support three education initiatives - Trout in the Classroom, Mayfly in the Classroom (TIC & MIC) and Eden Rivers Trust’s ‘Rivers in the Classroom’ initiative . All three initiatives focus on primary and secondary school children who……

•Engage in stream habitat / ecology study.

•Learn to appreciate the value of healthy rivers and streams.

•Begin to foster a conservation ethic.

•Grow to understand ecosystems.

The projects are interdisciplinary and have applications in science, social studies, mathematics, language, the arts and physical education. They are also a lot of fun and it’s a great opportunity for kids to discover the natural word in an outdoor classroom....it’s also a good excuse for a game of Pooh Sticks!

Outdoor education provides a whole range of benefits to kids, including;learning about: nature; society; nature-society interactions and oneself. Outdoor education can involve working with others, developing new skills, undertaking practical conservation and influencing society. The intended outcomes of such experiences can encompass: knowledge and understanding, attitudes and feelings, values and beliefs, activities or behaviours, personal development and social development.
