With over 15 years experience as a children’s wildlife educator my educational visits to Primary schools are in high demand and I have lots of regular customers

Using a combination of Powerpoint shows, exclusive Wild Owl videos and a live British owl my visits are an experience the children never forget.

My school visits are not an ‘owl display’ but is targeted wildlife education at its best, with a specific slant on owl conservation but also including wildlife gardening.

Whether you are an art groupl or a children’s club you will love my ‘Draw an Owl’ visit.

My barn owl  Misty and my tawny owl Jaz will sit patiently on a perch so they can be drawn or painted - an amazing opportunity to study these beautiful birds.

During the session I will deliver a regular commentary about the species, their features and how they survive in the wild.

This unique service is a wonderful way to appreciate owls and learn more about them. (Also available for schools)
