Seeley Copse is an eight-hectare area of semi-ancient woodland directly opposite Home Farm dairy and the location of the Goodwood Education Centre. Two hundred years ago chalk was dug from areas of the copse to make mortar for Goodwood House and Estate walls. This has resulted in holes and hills around which a Nature Trail weaves, providing a myriad of opportunities for outdoor learning, exploration and discovery.
Visits to Seeley Copse are designed to promote an improved understanding of the ways of the natural world. Through first-hand exploration and discovery, children become familiar with concepts in conservation, including minibeasts and woodland habitats, food chains and ecosystems, discovering for themselves the importance of looking after the environment.
An example of the workshops available are Terrific Trees, Stone Age Workshop and Rocks, Soils and Den Building.
