If you’re interested in snails or slugs but never felt ready for a beginner’s ID workshop, then this day is for you!

It’s a day for people who are fascinated by slugs and snails but don’t know where to start with them. It’s a very gentle introduction to the world of slugs and snails, and the art telling one kind from another.

  • Come and see different types of live British slugs and snails
  • Learn some of their names
  • Learn how to tell a few of them apart
  • Listen to some fascinating talks from a snail expert
  • Find out what to do if you want to take your interest further

Most of the day will take place in the classroom, but if the weather is good, we will go outside to look for some interesting slugs and snails. So bring some clothing for the outdoors and don’t forget to bring a packed lunch! Starts at 10 am and ends at 4 pm.

Please note that this course is an introductory course and absolutely no experience of slugs or snails is needed – just a passion for nature and learning more about wildlife that is often overlooked.

Dr June Chatfield has had a lifelong interest in snails and is an active member of the Conchological Society of Great Britain and Ireland with a career as a college lecturer, museum curator, author and consultant. She has led snail courses at Juniper Hall since 1967.

This course is heavily subsidised by the FSC BioLinks Project (funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund).
