School visit information and educational resources for primary, secondary and beyond.

Whatever your level of knowledge this resource will help you understand more about these streams and why they are so special.

Chilterns Chalk Streams provide an excellent opportunity to engage students in their local geography and history and to learn more about the living things that we share the landscape with. They also provide a real example of how climate change and human development are having an impact on the environment here in the UK right now. Use our curriculum-linked resources in the classroom, or book one of our educational visits to get your class learning outdoors.

These streams are also an outdoor laboratory – find out how citizen science and higher education research are increasing our understanding.
