Wednesday 28th February, 10am-1pm, Rathfern Social Activity Centre and Carnmoney Hill



This course will introduce you to the world of badgers, why they are protected and what you can do to help monitor them. The course will begin with an introduction to badger characteristics and how to identify them and their setts. We will then cover the laws surrounding their protection and why the Belfast Hills monitors the population in the Hills. This will be followed by guidance on surveying techniques before heading out on to Carnmoney Hill to put what we have learned into practice.

As part of this course is outside, please wear suitable outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear. We will provide tea, coffee and biscuits for a comfort break before we go out on to the hill.


Spaces are limited so book sooner rather than later. To book, email Lisa at
