Projects & Identification Guides
From volunteer-led grant-funded projects to free training and identification guides
We can organise and run training workshops and survey days for community groups to support their projects on a diverse range of areas including woodland heritage, wildlife, ecology and landscapes.
The project links on the right feature current, SYBRG-backed projects. There is useful output material available for download or the opportunity to find out about further follow-up work. Many of the projects feature guides and other material which may be useful and of interest to groups or individuals wishing to follow on from the project, find out more or become involved.
The projects usually have information sheets or guides associated with them, either to accompany the project itself, or as output from it. A number of the projects listed to the right have these to download free from their respective pages. Others can be found under the 'Identification Guides' link via the menu above, or by clicking here.
