Young People

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.

Our Education Team are also able to arrange visits to schools and universities, or arrange for student field trips to the Observatory.
