Youth & Education
Children learn most about nature by going outside and exploring nature itself. What better place than in the Biesbosch? In this maze of gullies and creeks, forests, reed and brushwood every trip is an adventure. National Park De Biesbosch offers a comprehensive educational program for primary and junior secondary education.
In developing our educational program we have embraced the principle of 'learning by discovry', in which sensory experience is key. All our activities appeal to "Head (knowledge), Heart (engagement) & Hands (skill)." Students are stimulated to explore ánd enjoy nature. Activities are guided by specially trained volunteers.
Choose 'School Programs' to browse the range of activities for schools. Since we are focusing on schools from the Netherlands, these pages are Dutch only.
