The Records Centre is not primarily an educational organisation, however we do acknowledge that recording wildlife often throws up new challenges as people are constantly learning new identification techniques or surveying skills for instance.

This part of the website will introduce some of the ways the BRC can support local societies, schools and individuals who want to begin recording or learn new skills to help them improve their recording. It will also provide you with some background information and highlight some aspects of Kent's communities and environments that we are involved in.


Don't miss the exciting wildlife events, study days and conferences around the County. Something for everyone, whatever age!
