Families, schools & youth groups

This page is for young people!

Paxton Pits is a great place for youngsters who like to get out and get messy!

We have two vibrant, award-winning Wildlife Watch / Wildlife Explorer groups based at the Wildlife Trust's Environmental Education Centre in the Paxton Pits Nature Reserve.
Check out our News items: we formed in 2007, in 2009 we were 'Best New Wildlife Watch Group', and in 2010 we were 'Best Wildlife Watch Group'.
