Description

An exciting new opportunity to work alongside Chester Zoo

Complementing our fabulous MythFest in 2018 – celebrating stories, local crafts and connections to our natural resources CRTG have arranged two days of workshops with Chester Zoo Wildlife Connections. Participants will:

  • Benefit from new knowledge and practical skills to make improvements to your outside space for wildlife
  • Find out how to communicate what you’ve learned to potential visitors, encouraging new and hopefully longer stays
  • Gain a wealth of backup material to help you develop your environmental offer to visitors
  • Give you ways to engage with visitors encouraging them to return, or stay longer and explore our local landscape mindfully
  • Get a unique opportunity to build a relationship with Chester Zoo and network with other local tourism operators

Workshops will be run by Chester Zoo’s Wildlife Connections Project Officer, who has significant previous experience in eco-tourism and will be preparing some bespoke content just for us! (Chester Zoo wildlife Connections website is a great place to find all sorts of activities to enable you to act for your local wildlife – www.chesterzoo.org/connections )

Fees: -

CRTG members: £20 per day (2 workshops including all training materials – Lunch not included) Non-members: £50 per day (2 workshops including all training materials – Lunch not included) Non-members attending the workshops will be able to join CRTG at a 50% reduction (only £25!)

CRTG is working towards economic growth and environmental sustainability within the North Wales tourism sector. We are working with: tourism groups, businesses, local authorities and organisations to improve tourism products and the way we communicate with visitors and potential visitors
