Field Studies


All of the Cappanalea NCOET field studies programmes are run through our sister centre, Killarney National Park Education Centre. This Centre, run under the auspices of Cappanalea NCOET, is a joint venture between Kerry Education and Training Board and the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

KNPEC run a wide number of environmental courses, focusing upon the unique flora and fauna in our special part of the world.  Courses are geared towards both children and adults including our Junior Ranger Programme and the Spring Environmental School.

There are specific school programmes which are targeted towards primary science; junior science; biology; ecology and geography.  There is an annual primary school teachers’ in-service day, which is based at KNPEC. There are also courses for 3rd Level students specialising in environmental and the natural science.
