Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Outdoor Learning for all at Tollymore Field Studies Centre

Join FSC Tollymore this July for their first Outdoor Learning Symposium, a brilliant activity-packed weekend for anyone interested in the outdoors.

Everyone is invited to come and take part in the choice of sessions to discover more about the outdoors, or a particular sport.  The event is at Tollymore Field Studies Centre, close to Newcastle in County Down, with state-of-the-art onsite facilities and stunning locations nearby like the Mourne Mountains and coastline.

Friday 6th July is all about the kids, with activities especially for 6-17 year olds like rock climbing, nature art, paddle boarding and fire lighting. The day is £18 to attend, with parents free of charge.

Saturday 7th- Sunday 8th July will offer an adults-only weekend with a wide choice of daytime activities like campfire cooking, introduction to beekeeping, forest therapy, orienteering and freediving, along with engaging speakers in the evening.  Resident or non-resident tickets are on offer at £120 and £80.

Project Officer at FSC Tollymore Mark O’Connor explains: “Here at Tollymore we offer a huge range of courses and activities celebrating the amazing environment around us. This weekend is a great way for us to open the doors to as many people as possible, and hopefully introduce them to something new and exciting about the outdoors.”
