School Tours

Pre-2020 the AWNC actively encouraged schools to visit its properties and we hosted approximately 3,000 school children each year at our Spring Hill Estate. During these school tours, the interpretive staff of the AWNC took students on a guided walk along the trails within protected forest areas and introduced students to the diverse tropical flora and fauna of the Arima valley. The Nature Centre also accommodated school groups interested in more specific conservation activities and focused education experiences. 

At this time, the conduct of school tours by the AWNC Trust is suspended until further notice while we review and update our conservation education programme, which will include the curation of new exhibits. We expect to resume school tours in October 2024. Full details will be posted on this page.
