Education is at the core of the Screech Owl Sanctuary's work. Sharing our knowledge of the owls and other animals, their characteristics, habitats and conservation is one of our key aims.

We work with a variety of community and educational organisations for all age groups and abilities providing both off-site visits and on-site activities and workshops.

Our offsite work usually involves visiting an educational setting with a selection of our owls and other animals and offering an interactive session. Whether your topic is nocturnal animals, predators, Owl Babies or questions such as "What Happens when I fall asleep?" we can tailor our visit to meet your curriculum requirements.

For those organisations wishing to bring a group to visit us we can offer a range of demonstrations and activities to tie in with the topics / subject matter being studied from reading Meerkat Mail to studying animal management and welfare.

Educational Visits can be arranged at any time of the year.

Fees are worked out on an individual basis and depend on the location and duration of the visit.  Please contact us for more information.

Group Visits

Are you a local photography group, a residential home looking for somewhere to take your residents, young carers, or an art group wanting to spend a time drawing some owls to name just a few of the groups we have had recently visit us.

We love having groups visit us, and depending on your needs we accommodate all groups differently.

We will tailor activities & encounters to suit the ages and abilities of your group members. So if your group has specific needs (e.g. mobility issues, visual/auditory impairment, art and craft requests) we are happy to discuss how we can make your visit the best it can be.

We are also available to visit your group with our owls and other animals.

Group visits can be accommodated all year round and special group rates will be applicable. Please contact us for more information.


Our owls love to help the happy couple celebrate their special day.

Please contact us for a costings and availability. Charges will depend on the location and duration of the visit.

Please note that we do not fly the owls at weddings with rings.
