The Greensand Trust aims to inspire people to engage with the natural environment in their local area. We offer a variety of events and activities, from guided walks to fun family days, suitable for all ages and levels of interest, at sites across the Greensand Ridge.
We are an independent environmental charity working with local communities and landowners to conserve and promote the distinctive landscape, wildlife and history of the Greensand Ridge and the wider surrounding area.
Our dedicated Education Team works with local schools and groups to deliver programmes packed with fun activities, games and guided walks. These have good cross-curricular links, support national education initiatives and can be tailored to meet the needs of your group.
