Educational Talks and Displays

Turbary Woods raises its own funds to carry out the vital rescue and rehabilitation work. One of our main fund raising activities is the Educational talks we provide to schools, Clubs, Scout & Brownie Groups etc.

We also visit local Summer fetes, Shows and private functions. During the last 5 years we have become very popular at all the events we have taken part in and we find many times we are booked for the following year.

We take great pride in conservational education, especially the young children, many who sadly now a days do not no the difference between a barn owl and a Gull, we sometimes fly a selection of birds inside and out.
