As well as our own clubs for young people, Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory Trust also runs two groups for young people 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).
