BirdLife Malta is organising a three-month course for children, aged seven to 12, who have a keen interest in nature.

Starting in mid-October and running for 12 consecutive Saturday mornings until January 2024 (with a break for the Christmas holidays), the Nature Guardians Warden for a Day course will take a group of 12 children on a fun-learning mission at four nature reserves: Simar, Salina, Għadira and Foresta 2000.

Under the guidance and supervision of BirdLife Malta staff, the group will learn how to monitor water quality, how to plan and roll out habitat restoration plans and how to care for nature in the best possible way.

The cost of €260 covers all 12 sessions, transport to all nature reserves, materials for the course and also includes a free hoodie or T-shirt and cap with the Nature Guardians logo. The meeting point will always be Salina Nature Reserve at 8.30am, with the course taking three hours. When necessary, transport to the other nature reserves (included in the fee) will be provided by BirdLife Malta.

Booking will only be confirmed once payment is received and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will close on September 15 (or before, if fully-booked).
