Nurturing Nature is a Chase & Chalke project that focuses on the distinctive flora and fauna of the Chase & Chalke Landscape Partnership area.
As part of this project the Chase & Chalke team have organised free expert training in a variety of new survey skills.
The special landscapes of the Chase & Chalke area are currently under-recorded. The ‘Nurturing Nature’ project aims to address this by training members of the public in the skills needed to become wildlife surveyors.
Training will take place both in the field and in other locations, and will include session from beginner to more advanced. Subject matters will cover a wide variety of species and subjects across mammals, birds, plants, and trees. Training will take place both in the field and also online.
