Manningham's monthly Environment Seminars cover various topics relating to local, national and global environmental issues. Seminars are generally held on the first Wednesday of each month.

Many of the seminars will be complemented with field trips to allow broader education on the topics. Bookings are not required for the evening seminars; however bookings must be made for the field trips.

Due to the popularity of field trips, bookings are limited to two field trips per person for the series. You must attend the corresponding seminar to be eligible to attend and keep your booking for field trips.
