Ethos and Values

“The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.” -Lady Bird Johnson

Dallowgill provides visitors with the ability to experience the environment in a truly unique way.

There are few cars, light pollution is low and the centre is surrounded by many different habitats.

Through exploring and interacting with the local environment we aim to instil a passion for the natural world. In turn this will arm our young people with knowledge and understanding that helps them to make changes to the way they interact with the world and utilise its resources. 

We aim to run the centre with as little environmental impact as possible by:

  • using local suppliers whenever possible.
  • thinking carefully about the environmental impact of the products we use.
  • working to improve the environment around the centre to support wildlife.
  • working with local and national partners to ensure that the information and resources used at Dallowgill are up to date and accurate.
