Michaels workshops bring the world of Irish wildlife, birds, woodlands, bogs, sea-life and mini-beasts directly into the classroom for the children. He can custom design the activities to suit the needs of each class but his workshops usually include engaging and illustrated talks, school ground field-studies and fun worksheets and games.
He likes to bring the children on guided field-trips of local parks and other areas of natural interest, giving them an opportunity to experience the wonder of nature for themselves. Michael is an experienced wildlife educator, with a background in conservation and ecological research, he runs his own nature education service called Nature Learn.
