Hopefully the training courses I'm organising at venues across Yorkshire and the Humber this summer will help you to identify the plants and animals that live in your local area. The courses are most suited to beginners, i.e. people who have had little or no experience identifying species.
At the moment I'm busy organising venues and finding tutors, who all give up their time for free to help teach others about the things they are passionate about. The courses usually involve a bit of indoor learning and a field trip, this photo was taken at the beautiful Skipwith Common near York on the Fungi ID course last year, run by Alan Braddock of the Mid Yorkshire Fungus Group
To find out details of the courses we're running this year, go to the Yorkshire and Humber OPAL pages which gives details of all our upcoming events. Then email or phone me to book your place as soon as possible, as these courses are very popular!
