PondNet is offering FREE species identification and survey technique training for its volunteers and the general public with training sessions taking place across England and Wales.
These training sessions are linked to the species and habitat surveys often undertaken as a PondNet volunteer. However, the training is open to anyone who has a passion or an interest in freshwater identification and surveying.
There are a limited number of training spaces available on each session, with priority given to PondNet volunteers, so we would recommend booking your place quickly.
In 2017 the main focus for the training events will be on restricted species surveys with very little amphibian training available.
