Our Courses and Programmes

Wildlife Study Days are designed to help the people of Kent to learn more about the 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.

Study Days 2020

Our Study Days are held outside or in our centres across the county and offer the chance to enhance your wildlife knowledge, identification and management skills. 

The next 12 Study Days or other courses are shown below.  Please click on the black button at the bottom of the page for more Study Days or other courses taking place in 2020 and 2021.  These are being added to the website regularly.
