About the event

This workshop should help anyone who is considering running wildlife training events and workshops. It will provide ideas on how to plan and structure a day, the sorts of hand-outs which participants find most helpful, and how to get the best out of a field trip. Naming species underpins conservation and ecology, and being able to do so adds hugely to the fun of a walk in the countryside. It may at first seem like a daunting task.

This workshop offers ‘short-cuts’ to identification of plants and animals: which groups to look for in which habitat; what books to use; why knowing 10% of the species can be a breakthrough – if it’s the right 10%; recognition versus identification; and more.

Examples will be taken from a wide range of plants and animals, and the skills should be applicable to almost any group of organisms.
