The Canal & River Trust looks after most of the canals and rivers in England and Wales. Explorers has been designed to help you discover them while having lots of FUN!
Our Education Volunteers lead inspiring visits to key waterside destinations across the UK for schools and uniformed groups. 21 of our sites have been awarded the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom.
Our volunteers also lead outreach sessions in schools and deliver water safety assemblies - both of which are absolutely FREE. All of our activities are linked to the National Curriculum and are highly regarded by teachers. Contact us today to book a visit.
We are excited to announce the launch of our new Canal & River Challenge Badge, which we have created in partnership with Girlguiding Birmingham, There are six activities to complete in order to achieve the badge, all of which are canal and river themed. The badge is suitable for both Brownies and Guides across the country.
There are FREE lesson plans, competitions, activities and resources to use in the classroom and on visits to your local canal or river.
