Fellfoot Forward Site Seeing Project

Thursday 20th January 2022.  7:00pm – 8:30pm  ( Online)

The Fellfoot Forward Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS), led by the North Pennines AONB Partnership and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, will be looking at the County Wildlife Sites in the scheme area.  These sites will play an important role in the Cumbria Local Nature Recovery Network as set out in the recent Environment Bill.  Join us for an informal session to find out more about the Fellfoot Forward Site LPS Seeing Project, County Wildlife Sites and how you can get involved.

Volunteer Surveyors wanted

As part of the Fellfoot Forward LPS Site Seeing project we are looking for volunteers who are interested in surveying County Wildlife Sites in the Fellfoot Forward project area. You will require at least reasonable vascular plant identification skills, although good ID skills in other taxa will be considered.

If you wish to find out more about this project please book on and attend this online introductory session.

    @SocketedAxes @TullieHouse The Tullie Secret Garden has a juvenile or two "stranded" every year. It's parent will visit it and it will be OK. They are very noisy and the call is very poignant so it will tug at your heart strings!
