EDUCATION

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.” – John Lubbock, English statesman and naturalist

One of Cloudbridge’s missions is to provide environmental education to international and local students, visitors and volunteers through a series of student focused programs, tours and Welcome Centre displays. Individual education opportunities can be found under Volunteer/Research, while our group educational opportunities can be found below.
