Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

A day at the zoo with a difference

Join expert tutors for a new programme of exciting introductory days, held at Edinburgh Zoo. 2017 sees the first courses in this new partnership between FSC and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS).

Choose to learn about something completely different with days on tracking nearby wildlife, looking at the wonders of geology or seeing out how our pollinators are faring. There are also courses looking into the watery world of reptiles and amphibians or finding out about the amazing variety of ferns. The days are a great way to be introduced to a new plant, animal or landscape or to discover more about something you know a little about. 

Each short course is led by an expert tutor and is just £40. The zoo grounds are fascinating to visit and can be easily combined with a trip to Edinburgh city centre.

And if you take a liking to one of the subjects on a taster day then simply look out for follow on courses held at FSC Kindrogan in Perthshire, or FSC Millport in North Ayrshire.

Details of the programme can be found by clicking on the titles below, and courses can be easily booked online via the RZSS website
