Queens Award for Voluntary Service

Flora Fields Educational Programme

With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund the Flora Fields learning and volunteering programme started in autumn 2013 and continued until the end of 2014. There were four main strands to the programme:

  1. Learning activities for children in local primary schools and in Flora;
  2. A series of public lectures in the Storey Institute and associated visits to Flora and other wildlife sites which will be open to all;
  3. Training for volunteers to help them to maintain the reserve;
  4. An end-of-project two-day public exhibition in Lancaster City Centre about Flora, its heritage and the Fairfield Association’s longer-term plans for conserving and managing the Flora reserve.

Slides for each lecture can be accessed below as PDF files. There are also accompanying audio files for most of the lectures.
