Ever wanted to learn more about the wildlife that lives alongside us in Worcestershire? Then why not book yourself onto one of our wildlife discovery courses for adults?

Our wildlife discovery courses are a fun, interactive way of learning more about the wildlife of Worcestershire. Perfect for beginners, with no expectations or prior knowledge, they are an informal way to get started. 

Starting indoors for an introduction to the subject area and a chance to look closely at the subjects through specimens and photographs, you’ll then head outside to practise your wildlife identification skills and knowledge in situ (please wear appropriate clothing and footwear).  Refreshments are provided but you may like to bring your own binoculars, hand lens (where appropriate), camera and notepad to use during the course.

All our courses are delivered by natural history experts in a friendly and informal environment.  There are general interest courses to broaden your knowledge of particular areas and habitat and species specific courses to hone in your identification. From butterflies and bees to geology and fossils there’s plenty discover on and off our nature reserves throughout Worcestershire.
