Sue Rees Evans from British Dragonfly Society is running 2 dragonfly identification workshops aimed at beginners. Participants will learn to identify a range of species throughout both sessions. Classroom inputs during the morning will focus on identification of damselflies (session one – 21st July) and dragonflies (session two – 4th August). Following a brief lunch the afternoons will be spent outside around the centre ponds and the River Onny putting our new identification skills to the test. Participants are welcome to attend both days as a series though attendance on just 1 day is also possible. £10 per session. Booking essential, please call 01588 676060.
