Wildlife Connections: Linking Wildlife-Rich Habitats Across the Inner Forth
Thu 23 March 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
Whether we have a back garden or a farm, we can all do our bit to help wildlife.
This free, single-day event will give you an opportunity to learn about what you can do to create new habitat in our landscape - one of the best ways to help wildlife flourish. This event will take place from 10am to 4pm and will include talks from community groups, land managers, charities and local authorities explaining what they have done to help wildlife on their land, and why.
In the afternoon there will be an opportunity to head outside and get practical advice on how to manage specific habitats, whether that is wetlands, wildflower meadows or woodland. There will also be an opportunity to talk to a range of experts and highlight projects you may want to take forward, or areas where you may need assistance.
