National Parks & Wildlife Service Education Programmes

The National Parks & Wildlife Service runs a series of Education Centres around the country. The Education Centres aim to raise awareness of the natural world and of conservation. Programmes are free of charge to schools, and to the general public. Each centre offers site specific programmes, but typically, they may offer Nature Awareness programmes to primary schools and ecology and geography fieldwork to secondary schools. They may also offer special events and tours for the public.

Aims of National Parks & Wildlife Service’s Education Programme:

  • To promote respect, understanding and care for heritage and particularly for the natural world
  • To encourage the development of environmentally friendly practices
  • To inform the public about the National Parks and Wildlife service and their role in conservation
