Join the Volunteering Team at the Countess of Chester Country Park for a chance to have a go at wildlife recording with staff from Record, our local biological records centre.

Staff from Record will introduce you to the reasons why recording the wildlife around us is important and fill you in on how to get started. We’ll then be working together to look for and document the site’s wildlife.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Looking for wildlife, e.g. bird spotting, searching for invertebrates such as bees etc.
  • Helping to identify any species found using books and guides or your own knowledge
  • Photographing species found to be identified later
  • Helping to accurately record this information

*Please note* this is taster volunteer opportunity rather than a formal workshop or training session. Although expert knowledge isn’t necessary, you’ll need to be willing to get stuck in and learn as you go.

By the end of the session we hope that you’ll have gained some inspiration and knowledge to go away to do your own wildlife recording; or to join us at future recording days or more formal volunteer opportunities.

Find more information and book your place via the Volunteer Hub activity listing by Tuesday 26th September.

Any questions please contact the team by emailing
