Environment programme

The environment is core

The environment is at the core of everything we do at Creggan Country Park. From education, awareness, volunteering, biodiversity management, citizen science and renewable energy.

Our mission is to protect our natural heritage, boost local biodiversity and become a working example of how social enterprise can help people and nature simultaneously. We aim to become a centre of best practice for green infrastructure and climate change awareness through a variety of projects.

Nature’s Classroom

Nature’s Classroom is a free environmental education programme for primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.
