In line with Government guidelines on Covid-19, all in-person training workshops have been cancelled, for 2020.
2021 - Wildlife Training Workshops
We have successfully run 5 on-line training sessions using Microsoft Teams Live this year. Due to their success, in the current circumstances we will be continuing to run them throughout 2021, in addition to in-person outdoor sessions with small groups (obviously numbers are dependent on Covid guidelines). For 2021 there will be the option of attending online or a limited number of places available for participants to attend both.
The 2021 training workshops leaflet will be delivered with the winter edition of Local Wildlife to members.
NOTE THAT ALL BOOKINGS FOR 2021 TRAINING WORKSHOPS CAN ONLY BE MADE THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, THROUGH THE CHECKOUT ON EACH INDIVIDUAL WORKSHOP

Discover & Learn
Do you want to get closer to your local wildlife, develop your natural history skills and learn about what special wildlife you have right on your doorstep?
Get involved with others
The workshops are run in a relaxed atmosphere and are a great way to meet like-minded people.
Where are the workshops held?
They are held at some of the best wildlife sites in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Northamptonshire.
The trainers are enthusiastic local naturalists, who are more than willing to share their vast knowledge with workshop participants.
