Epping Forest Young Naturalists is aimed at 11–14 year-olds with an interest in ecology.

The group will provide practical experience and conservation skills by taking an active involvement in promoting and protecting nature and gain first-hand experience of practical conservation and wildlife surveying.

They will meet like-minded people in their community and improve their confidence and well-being spending time outdoors. There will also be a focus on understanding local and global conservation issues and how they, as individuals and as a group, can contribute to wildlife conservation.
