Adventures with sticks at College lake by Cliff Hyde

Our visitor centres offer a great day out for all the family, whatever the weather

Both College Lake in Bucks and The Nature Discovery Centre in Berks have wonderful wildlife and fantastic lakeside trails to explore, as well as cosy cafes with a great selection of food and drinks. Find out more about both visitor centres below.

We want you to get the most out of your visits to us, so that you can learn about and appreciate the special wildlife and wild places found in our area. The knowledgable staff and volunteers will be happy to answer your wildlife questions and inspire you about the wildlife you find.

Both our centres also offer education programmes for schools and community groups, and a programme of events that everyone can take part in. You can also hire a space for your event in one of our beautiful locations.
