Facilities at Easton & Otley College to support study of the countryside include a 245 hectare estate, mature and recently planted woodlands and hedgerows, species rich wet grassland alongside the River Yare and numerous ponds and field margin habitats around the estate. Wildlife monitoring is an important aspect of all courses and the physical resource of the College enables students to participate in bird, wildflower, small mammal and invertebrate surveys.
The College is part of a national initiative to captive breed red squirrels for release into suitable sites. Harvest mice have been successfully bred and released into local sites. The Easton & Otley College team is very pleased that its course is recognised throughout the country and former students are in employment with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, the National Trust, District and County Councils, the Broads Authority, Anglian Water and a number of private estates.
