School visit

If you want to learn about nature, you learn best out in nature itself. The Wetland Center believes in seeing, experiencing, feeling and knowing what we have around us. Through our various teaching programmes, we can offer a wide selection of subjects in nature guidance for schools.

We offer both nature guidance at the Wetland Center and we can be booked to visit schools. See detailed description of the arrangements below. It is possible to spend the night in a tent in our outdoor area if there is a long journey or if the class wishes to have an academic arrangement over several days. In Naturhuset we have a kitchen, toilets and a meeting room that can be rented for overnight stays. Get in touch if there is anything you are wondering about.

Vika by the Wetland Centre is nice to explore

The Dokka Delta has a very large biological diversity that can be explored in many ways. We have extensive experience from field work for biology students and adapt arrangements according to wishes and the season. We have the equipment and facilities to carry out a number of schemes at the Wetland Centre such as;

Guided canoe trip in the delta

Ringing of birds

Water insects, water measurements and water samples

Fishing and ice fishing

Nature boxes about four ecosystems; The Dokka Delta, forest, bog and mountains

Exhibition of the biological diversity in the Dokka Delta

A series of lectures adapted to the curriculum in biology and natural sciences

Biological diversity and sustainable management of nature

Bird as an indicator of climate change

Fish in the Randsfjorden

Adaptations in species and ecology

Wetland – ecosystem services

The living bogs

Littering and pollution – consequences for nature and us

School visit – for pupils or workshop with teachers

Lecture on foreign species in the Inland for Dokka VGS

Our employees have over 70 annual projects to take care of our nature, we take this practical knowledge and experience into communication for schools. In the new science curriculum, there will be more exploration of the school’s local environment, as well as measures to preserve biological diversity in the local environment. We have extensive experience in doing this through our versatile work to preserve and restore nature. Advice on what measures can be taken is something we can contribute through a school visit. What you can do in the school’s immediate environment depends on what type of nature is nearby. Get in touch if you have specific wishes for a visit from us, we adapt content according to wishes and age levels.

Topics in natural sciences and biology

Biological diversity and how to manage nature

Ecosystems at risk and ecosystem services

Climate change and biodiversity

Seasons, adaptations in animals and plants

Nocturnal animals


Human influence in Arctic areas – birds on Bjørnøya


Red list – examples of species in Innlandet and why they are on the list

Food and Health

Competence targets that we can introduce and create a scheme around;

critically assess information about food production and discuss how consumer power can affect local and global food production

explore the climate footprint of food products and understand how food choices and food consumption can affect the environment, the climate and food safety

Mediation with nature boxes

We have four different nature boxes with the ecosystems Dokkadelta, Gammel skog, Myr and Fjell, which can be taken on school visits to give an insight into some selected species. An educational scheme around the boxes is adapted to age levels so that the boxes can be used both for kindergartens, schools and upper secondary schools.

The forest fund contains typical species in forests

The professional arrangement around the boxes is adapted to age levels

Academic input for science teachers

Course/workshop for teachers in topics within the curriculum in science;

Explore the biological diversity around the school and find measures that can help preserve diversity

Supply chains – examples from the local area

Birds – how to increase species knowledge and general knowledge of birds

Feel free to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and you can see many examples of nature guidance.
