Educational Visits

Educational visits to Fleet Pond Nature Reserve are a great way to learn more about the great outdoors. This Site of Special Scientific Interest provides a unique learning opportunity due to its diverse range of habitat types. Activities available for groups include pond dipping and bug hunting sessions, nature trails and scavenger hunts. Ranger led visits may be available May through to September.  Small groups (12 or less)  can be led by members of the Fleet Pond Society free of charge if a volunteer is available.

We welcome group visits to the nature reserve but for health and safety reasons it is important that the Hart Countryside Rangers are consulted in advance prior to any groups visiting.

The pond dipping platform, for example, has proved very popular and unless prior notice is given of an intended visit, a clash of groups may occur.

Please notify the Hart Education Ranger on or call 01252 623443 if you intend to visit the nature reserve and the Rangers will discuss with you the best activity options for your group, as well as covering the health and safety requirements which need to be documented. Self led visits around Fleet Pond are encouraged, however we still ask that you get in contact with the Ranger so we can check arrangements.
