Thanks to funding from the Generation Green project we can offer a limited number of subsidised places on our huge range of Natural History and Art courses.

We want young people aged 18-25 living in England to attend our courses to enable them to take on volunteer and professional roles in the green economy. Our highly recognised and valued courses are excellent for updating your CV and helping you to stand out from the crowd!

Once all subsidised places have been claimed we will no longer be able to offer you the discount, so book early to avoid disappointment, and to save you money!

What’s the difference between the online, one-day and two-day courses?

Our online natural history courses let you learn from the comfort of your own home. Each course covers 2, 3 or 4 topics, where you will have 90 minutes a week of self-led learning followed by weekly interactive zoom sessions delivered by expert tutors.

Our one-day courses are led by expert tutors at a number of locations around the UK, ranging from beginner to expert level.

Our two-day courses offer you a residential experience which gives you the chance to really engage with your chosen topic, visit somewhere a bit further afield and build stronger relationships with others on the course.

Whichever course you choose, you will be gaining knowledge, developing transferable skills and meeting other like-minded people in the environmental community.
