The Species Recovery Trust runs a series of acclaimed training courses teaching a range of skills throughout the year and across the country.
One of our core remits is re-connecting people with the natural world around them and these courses aim to improve identification skills and understanding of ecosystems. By attending these not only will you get a chance to learn about nature in stunning and surprising locations with like-minded people, but also financially support our species recovery programme.
