Free Illustrated Talk - The Science Behind The Moors for The Future Project

Thursday July 20th, Royal Hotel, Hayfield

You've probably seen the posters dotted around about this Thursday's free talk. It follows directly on from our (very brief) AGM, starting at 7.30p.m.

Now here's your personal copy - as a memory jogger! It should be a fascinating and inspiring evening as MfTF show how they are progressively 'greening' our local moors, managing down carbon emissions, reducing water run-off and flood risk and increasing species diversity, as part of Europe's largest moorland conservation project. We hope to see you there!

Earlier that day, the project is running a 'Community Science' event for volunteers who want to help in identifying some of the mammalian wildlife found on and around the moors. The free training event runs from 1.30-4.30p.m. at New Mills Volunteer Centre, Union Road, New Mills. It will introduce Community Science's latest survey - 'Tails of the Uplands'. It will provide those attending with information on the ecology and field signs of otters, water voles and mink in order to help them, as volunteers, to perform field surveys to monitor their presence in and around the Peak District and South Pennines. The session is indoors and there'll be a chance to sign up for a further outdoor session at a later date. No prior experience is needed, just bring your enthusiasm!
