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 2021
Our Study Days offer the chance to enhance your wildlife knowledge, identification and management skills. Our face to face courses are held outside or in our centres across the county and we are now also offering several courses online.
Our next 12 courses are shown below. Please click on the black button below for more courses taking place in 2021. Courses are added to the website regularly.
