Event description

Description

Join us at RSPB Baron's Haugh, Motherwell on Saturday 21st October 2017 for a fun, free and informative day all about badgers! Learn about badgers and how they live, the threats they face and how to spot their field signs when you're out & about. We'll have a morning session at Motherwell South Parish Church Hall followed by an afternoon in the RSPB Baron's Haugh Reserve looking for setts & signs.

Things to note: Booking is essential as places are limited. Suitable for complete beginners but those with some badger knowledge will also be very welcome. The morning session will be at Motherwell South Parish Church, 11 Gavin St, Motherwell ML1 2RL. After a lunch break we will make our way onto the Reserve, a short 10 minute walk away.

Tea/coffee/biscuits will be provided on the day but please bring a packed lunch. There are a range of shops and cafes close to Motherwell South Parish Church. As part of the event will be outdoors, please come dressed for the changeable Scottish weather. Please wear stout footwear and be aware that some of the outdoor session will be on uneven ground and slopes. This course is not suitable for children but do keep an eye on our Facebook Page as we have lots planned for young cubs too!

We look forward to welcoming you at Baron's Haugh! If you need any further information, please contact our Project Officer Catherine Cumming on projectofficer@scottishbadgers.org.uk.

This event is part of the 'Badgers in the Landscape - Community Building for Wildlife Conservation' project - a Scottish Badgers project based in South Lanarkshire, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage.
