Sat, 08/07/2017 - 9:50am - 3:30pm

A free workshop teaching you how to identify dragonflies and damselflies.

Please book on our free training workshop.

This one day workshop is as a part of London Wildlife Trust's Water for Wildlife project. We are training people as volunteer surveyors of dragonflies and damselflies across London.

The day itself will consist of an indoor workshop/presentation in the morning at Kingston University, followed by a practise survey at a reserve on the River Hogsmill.

We are asking for possible volunteers to commit to monthly surveys. These often take between 11;00 and 15:00 and take place across weekends and workdays.

Additional training dates will be published on the London Wildlife Trust 'What's On' page over the coming weeks.
