Get Involved

Anyone can get involved you don't need experience just enthusiasm, a willingness to learn and help make Taunton a better place for wildlife.

 

Bat surveys

Join us for some basic training and then you will be out exploring the secret wildlife of Taunton with one of our small teams of volunteers. Volunteer teams walk a section of the town's waterways and record the bats they discover. All equipment is provided.

Next training will be in early Spring - please let us know if you would like to be included.

Water Voles and Otters

Join us as we hunt for hay smelling otter poo or bright green water vole poo along the waterways of Taunton.  Volunteer teams walk a section of the town's waterways and record the water voles and otter signs they discover. All equipment is provided.

Next training will be 14th May  - please let us know if you would like to be included.
