On the occasion of the launch of the new Jurassic Studies Centre, situated at the centre of the natural World Heritage Site of Dorset and Devon's Jurassic Coast, in Lyme Regis, United Kingdom, a range of natural science courses will take place in February and March 2010 and 2011, in partnership with the Natural History Museum and the Field Studies Council.

This pilot project will offer a unique and innovative programme of field based learning with a choice of fourteen different courses led by renowned specialists in geology, entomology, botany, mineralogy and paleontology, and based on the exceptional universal value of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Courses are intended for beginners, collectors, science teachers or students wishing to expand their knowledge of natural sciences.

Participants will be based in Victoria House, a detached red-brick property with spacious en-suite accommodation, and situated only a short walk away from the beach.

Candidates who are interested can make a provisional booking online, or by contacting the Field Studies Council head office.
