Environmental Education

Strangford Lough Activity Centre use the outdoors as a classroom for learning. We can tailor an Environmental Education programme to meet your requirements and offer course completion certification for all participants.

Paddle with a purpose

Carry out some important work on Strangford Lough and help to clean up its shores. Using our Open Canoes accompanied by our experienced instructors, we will paddle you to an area identified for its marine pollution. Using Litter Pickers and Bin bags we will carry out a beach clean.

Leave No Trace

Our Instructors at SLAC are Leave No Trace trainers. Leave No Trace is an outdoor ethics programme designed to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships. The awareness course is a one day programme that focuses on the seven principles;

  • Plan ahead and prepare.                                       
  • Travel and camp on durable surfaces.                 
  • Dispose of waste properly.                                                                         
  • Leave what you find.                                            
  • Minimize campfire impacts (be careful with fire).
  • Respect wildlife.  
  • Be considerate of other visitors.

Each LNT programme is certified and all participants will receive a certificate of completion.

Bushcraft & Survival Skills

Do you want to learn how to become self sufficient in the wild?

  • Shelter Building
  • Fire Lighting
  • Navigation
  • Fishing
  • Rope Work

Often schools & colleges want to use their local area to learn about the environment. Many of the activities we offer can be tailored to your local area. As a mobile activity operator we can come to you.

At SLAC we are very grateful to have a beautiful country that we can call home with a moderate climate that makes Outdoor Activities viable all year round. We organise regular beach cleans and canoe trips to islands in Strangford Lough where we collect marine litter that may damage wildlife and dispose of it in the correct way. Utilising the practices of Leave No Trace, we can create learning in the outdoors to educate and inspire whilst protecting the environment for future generations.

If you are wanting to do your bit for the environment then give us a call and we can create something bespoke to your requirements in an area that is important to you.
