Phoenix Group

RSPB Phoenix Group

This is a group run for 13 to 18 year olds in conjunction with the RSPB. The aim is to bring nature to life by having fun with lots of hands on activities.

Events take place in and around the Field Centre (unless otherwise indicated) on the last Saturday of the month from 10.00 till 14.00 and costs just £3.00 each session per person.

In order to take part young people must be registered with SBBOT. Please e-mail to register your interest and request registration forms. Events will be limited to 20 young people so please contact us as soon as possible.

Each meeting will follow a similar pattern. We will get to know the area by going to different places. Including visits to the ringing room, when weather permits, to observe the ringing process, learn identification tips and aging criteria, also examine any interesting moths that may have been caught the previous night.
