Wildlife Study Days & Programmes

© S FalkGreen-eyed Flower bee by Steven Falk

Increase your knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of Kent’s wild plants and animals - and learn how to manage habitats to encourage them.

Wildlife Study Days are designed to help the people of Kent to learn more about wildlife of the county. Beginners are very welcome and those with some experience will be able to improve their knowledge and identification techniques.

Leaders are knowledgeable in their own topics but are also pleased to discuss other points of interest as they arise. We aim to create an informal atmosphere in which everyone can progress at their own speed.

Wildlife Study Days are mostly held outside ‘in the field’, often on nature reserves. Most days start at about 10am and continue to around 3 or 4pm. Please remember to check the timings for each study day, as these do vary from course to course.

You will usually be required to bring a packed lunch and refreshments. Most courses also require suitable outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear to be worn.

Each day is usually limited to 15 places, with 6 as the normal minimum to proceed.

Many courses are very popular, so early booking is recommended.
