Helping wildlife by submitting records of what you see

Highfield Park, St Albans

This free, introductory-level event will look at how we can all be ‘citizen scientists’ and not just spot wildlife but submit records of what we have seen.

The event will begin with a short talk at the Highfield Park Visitor Centre. Following the talk, attendees will have the opportunity to go on a guided walk of the park to demonstrate how what has been learned can be put into practice. This event is suitable for adults, as well as accompanied teenagers who are looking to learn more about the natural world.
