School Groups
Staglands Wildlife Reserve provides a wonderful educational environment offering fantastic learning opportunities that reflect the new NZ Curriculum and 5 Key Competencies.  These experiences cannot be replicated in the classroom. Bookings are essential and it is highly recommended that you book as early as possible to ensure that your preferred date is available. Click here to contact us.

Your group can use The Barn as a central point and you are welcome to bring your own lunch or book in our special BBQ pack.
There is plenty of room for parking cars and buses and our Staglands Café is open every day, so the parents and teachers can get a well earned coffee.
