Find a Training Session

The Beautiful Burial Ground project aims to inspire, engage and support interest groups, communities and individuals to learn about, research and survey the biodiversity and heritage of their local burial grounds.  We aim to do this by offering a range of training events.
All sessions are free of charge, anyone is welcome to book on.
